Fatal accident at Gamsberg

It is with great sadness, that Vedanta Zinc International (VZI) and ELB Group Limited (ELB) confirm that an accident at VZI’s Gamsberg Project near Aggeneys in the Northern Cape on Friday, 25 May has claimed the life of an ELB employee. No other employees were injured in the incident. The next-of-kin of the deceased have been informed, and his details are being withheld to protect the privacy of his family.

All of us at ELB and VZI are devastated by the news, and commit to assisting the family of the deceased, now and in the weeks and months to come. Our deepest condolences are with his family, friends and colleagues.

All work at the Gamsberg Project has been halted while investigations – involving the local emergency services and South African Police Services, the Department of Mineral Resources, our representative trade unions and senior Vedanta management and operations structures – are underway.
