ARMED INTRUSION OF NORTH MARA RESULTS IN ONE CASUALTY

North Mara Gold Mine, Tanzania, December 3, 2022 – Shortly before midnight on 30 November more than 100 illegal miners, armed with machetes and spears, attempted to scale North Mara Gold Mine’s 3- metre-high perimeter wall. Of these, approximately 70 trespassers made their way onto the mine’s premises and started seizing material from its stockpile and sabotaging property.


The unarmed private security contractors attempted to prevent the intrusion but were attacked and overpowered by the armed trespassers. The mine then asked the police to enter the site to remove these intruders which they did over a period of approximately one and half hours. During this operation one of the intruders was injured. The police transported him to a nearby hospital for treatment, where he sadly succumbed to his injuries.


Two police officers also suffered injuries during the incident.


The nature of the deceased’s injury and the cause of his death have not yet been established, however an investigation of the incident will be requested from the authorities by North Mara.
