Mines launch own probe of Marikana

Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC)

Mining companies have taken the unusual step of appointing their own investigation into the socioeconomic circumstances that led to the Marikana tragedy last year, warning that other such incidents could follow if they did not do so.

The Chamber of Mines has contracted the National Research Foundation (NRF) – the country’s main research funding agency to identify the socioeconomic drivers that caused the violence at Lonmin’s platinum mine last year where 34 miners were killed by the police.
