WE CARE AND WE REMEMBER

Hlobane

12 SEPTEMBER 1983

Today, the Minerals Council and our country’s coal industry will remember the 64 miners who lost their lives in a methane explosion at the Hlobane colliery near the town of Vryheid in KwaZulu-Natal. The fiery methane gas explosion that tore through the mine was South Africa’s second most deadly colliery disaster.
