Fatal Accident At Bokoni Mine

JOHANNESBURG, Aug. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Atlatsa Resources Corporation ("Atlatsa" or the "Company") announces with deep regret that a winch operator lost his life in a scraper winch-related accident at Bokoni Platinum Mine's (Bokoni) UM2 shaft section on Wednesday, 28 August 2013.

Immediately after the accident Bokoni mine management stopped operations at the affected section. The South African Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) then completed its inspection and issued a section 54 safety stoppage notice at UM2 shaft section.

An improving safety culture, with specific emphasis on changing individual behavioural patterns, is imperative to our overall transformation strategy at Bokoni.
