I received the following letter from the Manager of the Donkerhoek Mine:

Thank you for your co-operation.

Yours faithfully,
Mine Manager – Donkerhoek Quarry.

Webb Industries have had a meeting with the Mine Manager and it has been confirmed that no exceptions will be made and the process will be strictly enforced. (Note: A recent accident at the mine/quarry resulted in the tragic fatality of one of the workers.)

Restrictions have also been placed on the amount of visits and the number of people visiting the mine at any given time. In the light of this, please negotiate with the committee prior to any visits to the mine.

I have been requested to ensure that these requirements be brought to the attention of all members and implemented accordingly, and by publishing the above letter, I have now ensured that all members have been duly advised, and I hereby request that these rules and regulations be adhered to.

Yours faithfully
