The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy yesterday issued - for public comment - a guideline for the compilation of a mandatory code of practice for the mitigation and management of COVID-19 for the mining sector.

This is in compliance with the outcome of a recent labour court process, and is part of efforts by the department - as regulator of the mining sector - to ensure the spread of the virus is contained and protect the health and safety of employees at mines, and other persons who may be directly affected.
