“We aren’t afraid of finding COVID-19 cases at South Deep; we are more afraid of not finding them”

As South Deep rolls out its COVID-19 response through proactive and thoughtfully developed processes and protocols, the mine has lessons to share with the broader industry about the benefits of a risk-based approach, strong communication and the implementation of technology to assist the screening process.
