Thirteen trapped underground at South African gold mine

Sibanye-Stillwater spokesperson James Wellsted said the rescue operation had been temporarily halted this afternoon after two seismic events.

Mine workers employed at Sibanye Gold's Masimthembe shaft operate a drill in Westonaria, South Africa, April 3, 2017. The miners were trapped underground for at least 24-hours.

Earlier this year, the company rescued over 1,000 workers after a strong storm caused the power to go out.

Wellsted's statement reads as follows: "The Management of Sibanye-Stillwater wishes to express its honest condolences to friends and family of the four deceased employees".

"Government is the regulator so it's for the government to see if these mines are compliant with health and safety", Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union President Joseph Mathunjwa said Friday. "We pulled them out for safety".
