lonminlogo thumb medium90 90News24 reports that a 46-year-old miner has died following an underground accident at Lonmin's K3 shaft on Sunday.  

According to a statement by the platinum producer, Tembelani Manyana, who had been a team leader, died in a "fall-of-ground accident".  "Mr Manyana succumbed to head injuries while being evacuated from underground.  This fatality is sad and disappointing as it ends a successful 15-month fatality-free period at Lonmin," said the group’s head of communications Wendy Tlou.  She said that a delegation visited Manyana's wife and extended family in Elliotdale, in the Eastern Cape, to inform them about the accident.
