Two Guruve artisanal miners drowned in Dande River while running away from security guards chasing them at Eureka Gold Mine.
Mashonaland Central provincial police spokesperson Inspector Milton Mundembe confirmed the incident which claimed the lives of Learnmore Muroiwa and Moses Thomas.
“We urge our citizens to respect the rule of law and we discourage artisanal miners to go to other premises for mining,” he said.
“They should prospect their own mines and gain necessary paperwork from the ministry.
“As police, we will not tolerate cases of theft or violence by artisanal miners and we will make sure that the law has been applied successfully.”
