Minerax Takes Over Dukha’s Mining Operations Amid Safety Concerns
Posted by: Lahasa Fy, Shili Free Press
Date: Year 20 Day 63 Onboard the Modular Taskforce Cruiser [PRESS]Burden of Proof in system n/a (13, 173).

In light of five serious incidents in the last two months, coupled with threats of strikes and walkouts by workers, Dukha Industrial has decided to establish a new company in order to commit more focus and expertise to industrial operations. Minerax Consulting, their new mining subsidiary, will be led by experts in material extraction, including Dukha's Vice President, Vitruvius Bakara, who will be a major shareholder of Minerax.

 

In recent weeks, there have been reports of a series incidents in Duhka's mineral extraction division, including mine collapses, unauthorized mine access, and accidental detonation of explosive charges commonly used in the process of retrieving materials. The worst of these incidents occurred in a varium mine on Dubrillion, and then a lommite mine on neighboring Destrillion. There are no confirmed deaths, but injuries are numerous, and these incidents have resulted in significant loss of material and productivity to the company.

 

CEO Dan Hakim released his first statement since becoming the sole shareholder of the Duhka Industrial:

“In years past, and indeed on occasion even now, I have gotten my own hands dirty working in our mines. However, I deeply regret these recent issues. I can’t be everywhere at the same time and it seems that perhaps there was too much for me to manage on my own. Fortunately, these mine collapses have not resulted in the loss of sentient life, but the injuries have caused myself and the management team great distress.

 

I can understand the numerous complaints and even the threats of strikes by our mining staff. Our efforts to improve cost efficiencies may have inadvertently led to a decrease in safety standards at a few sites.

 

While the company has paid the medical expenses and provided compensation to the injured miners, this is not enough. From hereon out, Minerax will be managing all of Dukha’s mines. They have been tasked with improving both safety and productivity. In addition, their expertise will also be available to other companies that require professional management of their material extraction sites.”

 

For the sake of the workers, we here at Shili Free Press hope this change does lead to safe work environments for all of Dukha and Minerax's employees.  To those in mines around the Galaxy, we hope you stay safe out there.
