Johannesburg - Underground operations at Sibanye Gold's Beatrix mine, in Welkom, in the Free State, were suspended on Wednesday because of a fire, the company said.

"We have decided to suspend underground operations at Beatrix Four Shaft while we assess the situation and bring the fire under control," said Sibanye Gold CEO Neal Froneman.

The fire broke out on Tuesday night.

Froneman said rescue teams had evacuated the entire mine by 07:00 on Wednesday without any injuries, or employees being exposed to undue danger.

He said the fire had not yet been extinguished and there were still high levels of smoke and gas in the mine.
