‘Unprecedented’ flooding erodes road to Sibanye’s Stillwater mine

Precious metals miner Sibanye-Stillwater reported on Tuesday that all its employees at the Stillwater mine, in flood-hit Montana, were safe, but stated that roads and bridges leading to the mine had been damaged.

The region has experienced widespread floods since Monday, after a warm spell led to a rapid melt of accumulated snow in the mountains and associated runoff, which was exacerbated by heavy rainfall over the weekend.
