Jobs on the line in Lily Mine's business rescue plan

20 June 2016 8:37 AM

Lily Mine has received a cash injection after filing for business rescue. What will happen to the 600 mine workers?

Concerns over job security have been raised in a Canadian company's involvement regarding Lily Mine's business rescue plan.

The mine closed operations in April when three mineworkers died after being trapped in a container underground during a rock-fall at the Barberton mine.

702's John Robbie spoke to business rescue practitioner, Rob Devereux, about how the plans will come into effect.

Listen to the interview below:

A quarter of Vantage Mine is being bought by a Canadian firm. The only mine in rescue is Lily Mine.

Rob Devereux, business rescue practitioner

We will re-deploy people to our sister mine. We will re-work a mine dump that will give additional employment to people.
