South Africa's Harmony Gold (HARJ.J) said on Monday a worker had been killed after a fall of ground caused by a seismic event at its Elandsrand gold mine on Saturday.

The incident occurred in the 95/10 W4 panel, approximately 2780m below surface. Regrettably one person, a Rockdrill Operator, succumbed to his injuries, the company said in a statement. (Reporting by Muchena Zigomo)© Thomson Reuters 2009 All rights reserved
