Dusty road sprinkled with oil to get rid of dust by the mine

Community Alerts/ Mathapelo/Limpopo/ 06 June 2017

Today as we where introducing social Audits to the community of Monametse I found something terrible on the road, this road is used most by bug trucks that are carrying production from Braamfontein shaft the road has being sprinkled by oil, I wondered why the mine use oil to get rid of dust and I think this makes the matter worse by polluting the soil, and you can ask yourself what will happen if someone throw a stick of matches.  I’m still in shock even now. I kept asking my comrades why the soil looks sticky on the ground and when took a closer look to carefully observe I smelled the oil. By Mathapelo
