Illegal Mining & Crime Prevention

High levels of illegal mining, especially at Barberton Mines pose significant safety and security risk, and negatively affects our gold production.

In response, Pan has implemented a multi-layered strategic and operational approach to combat illegal activities, in coordination with relevant law enforcement authorities. We have expanded our efforts to include community-based crime prevention initiatives, introduced CCTV networks on our operations, as well as dedicated significant resources to sealing off old mine shafts. These investments have already enabled us to target high-risk areas more effectively
