Jagersfontein Developments Tailings Dam update - 14 September 2022

Following the tragic collapse of its tailings dam on Sunday, Jagersfontein Developments is mobilising extensive clean-up operations of the affected town and its surrounds and has, in the meantime, been providing aid to the community members at Jagersfontein. An independent investigation has been launched as to the cause of the collapse and the company welcomes the commission of enquiry that will be led by the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy.

The company has already spent R600,000 of the R20m in relief funds it has made available for displaced residents by providing food parcels, necessary supplies and alternative accommodation for residents, as well as settling medical bills. Water was restored to the town on Monday and electricity re-connected yesterday, providing positive hope for the community and much-needed resources.

The tailings dam remains stable and waste is being pumped out of the dam. Engineers and inspectors are monitoring the surrounding environment, including rivers for pollution.

The company remains devastated by the collapse. Our heartfelt sympathies are extended to the community. We will not rest until the town is restored and the livelihoods of the residents are returned.
