Mynbou verniel SA kosmandjie

‘Dis soos ’n wegholtrein’

Die steenkoolmyne in Mpumalanga vernietig die land se kosmandjie én water.

DRD Gold's organizational structure is such that it is divided into dozens of sub-companies, with each sub-company being responsible for its own production and maximizing its own profit. It is structured in such a manner that the profits of one sub-company cannot offset the liabilities and impacts of another sub-company.  The result is that the impacts and the pollution costs of beleaguered sub-companies are often carried by communities, the environment and future generations and not by DRD Gold.
