“Rössing Uranium and the Mine Workers Union have had a long-standing relationship, and we firmly believe in supporting each other in our respective missions,” said Liezl Davies, the mine’s General Manager of Rössing Uranium.

Davies noted that there are several challenges when it comes to mining and that they are hopeful that the donation will aid in maintaining the wellbeing and safety of all mine workers.

The donation is not only a gesture of support, but also an investment and a means to strengthen our ties with the union,” said Davies.
