Open pit mine blasting left us wondering and with questions

Community Alert/ Elton Thomejane/ Limpopo/ 02 November 2016


Today on the road between Middleburg and Witbank, We became scared and started asking ourselves questions, this happened shortly after we experienced terrible and unusual blasting in one of the open cast mining. The whole area was covered in a cloud of black dust, the ambulances and fire brigades were also spotted moving towards the direction of the mine. Clearly something has gone terribly wrong which has to do with deadly explosives used by the mines.
