South African court orders Harmony Gold Mining Company Ltd to pay for old water pollution - Reuters

Thursday, 5 Dec 2013 11:08am EST 

South African appeal court:Says it has ordered Harmony Gold Mining Company Ltd to pay for managing water pollution at mines it previously owned in the country's North West province - Reuters.Says provincial Department of Water Affairs had in 2005 directed that Harmony and other companies including AngloGold Ashanti manage water contamination caused by mining in the area and share costs for anti-pollution measures.Says Harmony, ceased mining in the area in 2008 and then argued unsuccessfully in court it should no longer pay up because it had sold the land.Says it has dismissed Harmony's argument, saying its interpretation would result in the absurdity that a polluter could walk away from pollution caused by it with impunity, irrespective of the principle that it must pay the costs of preventing, controlling or minimising and remedying the pollution.
