Johannesburg - Production at the Doornkop mine west of Johannesburg has been stopped due to an underground fire.

All employees were brought to safety and no injuries were reported. The fire occurred in an old mined-out area where some cleaning operations had been taking place.

“The fire has been contained and we continue to monitor the gas readings. We will be able to extinguish the fire in the next couple of days, enabling production to recommence,” said Harmony [JSE:HAR] chief executive officer Graham Briggs.

The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.

Indications are that production can start again early next week.
