Gold Fields Limited (JSE, NYSE, NASDAQ Dubai: GFI) notes with concern incidents of intimidation and violence linked to the ongoing strike action by the National Union of Mineworkers at its South Deep gold mine in South Africa.
A small group of NUM members damaged property and intimidated non-striking staff both at work and at their near-by homes. Several employees have been assaulted and injured.
Gold Fields is extremely disturbed by the developments, which have marred what has to date been a positive engagement between South Deep management and the NUM. We will monitor the situation closely and will take appropriate action to protect our employees and property if and when required.
