Given the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Namibia declared a state of emergency and has put certain measures in place that are aimed at stopping the further spread of the virus in Namibia. One of the measures is partial lockdown period for the Khomas and Erongo Region – the Rössing Uranium mine is located in the Erongo Region. As a responsible business CNNC Rössing Uranium is supporting the Government and the people of Namibia in their initiatives to contain the spread of the virus.
As from 28 March 2020 the Rössing Uranium mine will discontinue normal mining operations and enter a period of minimal mining operations. As a safety measure critical maintenance work will continue.
