Tough times not holding Harmony Gold back


TOUGH economic times have not stopped Harmony Gold from continuing to operate the mine at Hidden Valley and pay royalties to the government, company community affairs manager Anthony Naguwean says.
Naguwean said the company would continue to support communities and institutions in the mine-impacted areas.
“Harmony Gold is here to stay and will continue to provide support to the communities in Wau as part of its ongoing community obligations,” he told parents and teachers of Riverside Community School in Wau on Friday during the dedication of a new classroom and the delivery of materials to make 40 desks.
“The new classroom was funded from the royalties paid to Wau Rural local level government who built the classroom.”
Naguwean said the funding came from its drilling incentive funds covered under its community engagement agreement.
Wau rural local level government manager Martin Wuling said they will be involved in more school projects throughout the 20 wards.
