Reopen the Dilokong Chrome mine says Ex- Workers


On Monday the former workers from Dilokong Chrome mine in Burgersfort and members of National Union of Mineworkers were gathered outside office of the premier in Polokwane calling for the re-opening of the mine since it was placed under business rescue in 2016.

The marches were embarked on a peaceful march to submit their memorandum of demands to the office of the premier as well as in the offices of Department of Mineral Resources and Limpopo Economic Development Agency (LEDA) in Polokwane.

Workers said they want to know what will happen to the mine. They are alleging that the department of mineral resources and energy has withheld issuing out a license to the successful bidder, Cheetah Company.

Their demands include among others, the re-opening of the mine and the department of mineral resources and energy to speed up processes of issuing a license to the successful bidder and that LEDA withdraw its litigation levels against that mine.

Marches want the premier to instruct and communicate with minister of Mineral Resources and Energy to speed up the process of section 11.

“Life has been challenging for us and our families since the mine was placed under business rescue in 2016 and it’s about three years now,” said the marches.

LEDA representatives had accepted the memorandum and promise to give a response within seven business day.
