Jagersfontein Developments Tailings Dam update - 27 September 2022

Recent media reports about a further collapse at the fine tailings storage facility at Jagersfontein this afternoon, are unfounded and untrue.

Officials from the Department responsible for environmental affairs were on site with Jagersfontein Developments representatives today to deal with storm water flows through an adjacent dam as a result of rainfall on Sunday and Monday. Due to the incident which occurred on 11 September 2022, the storm water is flowing in areas where tailings have spilled.

The facility continues to be monitored and is stable. As part of the emergency response, Jagersfontein Developments has commenced with the pumping of the tailings in compartment 2 of the facility to the pit. There has been no further breach of any kind at the facility.

Jagersfontein Developments has been working tirelessly at and remains committed to clean-up operations and continues to cooperate with all authorities, assisting residents and the surrounding community.
