A female employee was crushed to death when she fell onto a conveyer belt at De Beer’s Venetia diamond mine in Limpopo, police said today.
Spokesperson Brigadier Motjafela Mojapelo said the incident happened on Sunday.
”The conveyer belt ultimately dragged her into a stone scrubber where her body was found trapped between the rocks with multiple wounds. A case of culpable homicide has since been opened.”
The woman was identified as 31-year-old Maggie Dimakatso Semata.
Venetia mine is in Alldays, 80kms outside the town of Musina.
