Johannesburg - A Harmony worker died in an accident at its Joel mine in the Free State on Thursday, the second fatality at the gold mining company this week.

"Harmony regrets to advise an employee was fatally injured while attempting to clear a blockage in the loading bin on 137 level at its Joel mine in the Free State on Thursday evening," a statement from the company read.

Hoisting of ore and blasting operations at the mine have been halted.
