We regret to inform that an injury at our exploration operations in Zambia late last month, and follow on issues related to in-country medical care and a pre-existing medical condition has resulted in a fatality in Minerals Exploration.

James Lunga, an employee of Ox Drilling, died in hospital recently as a result of post-operative complications, eight days after local admission to the hospital for surgery to correct a broken ankle. While the precise details behind the actual cause of James' death are not known, he most likely died of a cardiac arrest as a result of a combination of factors, including his pre-existing medical condition.
