I, Monna Letlapa work at Kalagadi Manganese as a rock blaster?? I started my job in October 2017. I stay in the mine residence where I share the complex with XX men and XX women. We regularly meet at the canteen as we get provided with meals 3 times a day.
Kalagadi Manganese mine is constituted out of three contiguous farms, namely, Umtu 281, Olive Pan 282 and Gama 283, making a total area of approximately 6 300 ha. The mine is an underground mechanised trackless board and pillar mine.
