Parliamentary Portfolio Committee visits Exxaro
Mr. Sahlulele Luzipo led the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mineral Resources to the Exxaro Leeuwpan Mine in Delmas as part of their oversight visit. The thrust was to engage and investigate on the rehabilitation procedure undertaken by mining houses and in particular Exxaro following the extraction of the minerals from the ground. The portfolio committee was hosted by the Leeuwpan Business Unit manager Mangaliso Sethethi together with Exxaro officials from the head office.
The high-powered portfolio committee that visited the mine operation was made up of notable delegates like Zwelivelile Mandela took a tour around the mining operation and visited areas that were rehabilitated together with current pockets at the mine.
Prior to the visit to Mpumalanga the committee also visited Winkelhaak to see the unmarked graves of miners. This was a follow up visit to assess the implementation of resolutions following a visit that was undertaken in 2015.
