The mine's Corporate Communications and Environmental Management personnel operated from the building, and it was also the centre for hosting visiting groups to the mine.
A Rössing team has been formed to assess the structural damage to the building and offices, and at the same time a full investigation as to the origin and cause of the fire was launched. No fowl play is expected. The incident will have no impact on the mine's production targets. At this stage the value of the damage is still to be determined.
