FronemanBusinessLive reports that according to Neal Froneman, CEO of Sibanye Gold and vice-president of the Chamber of Mines, the establishment of a process such as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) is needed to build trust in the fractured mining industry.  

The TRC marked the end of apartheid and the start of reconciliation.  While not being too prescriptive, Froneman last week said the establishment of "TRC Two" would clear much of the bad blood and distrust that marked engagements between the companies, unions and the government on charting a sustainable and inclusive future for the industry at a particularly difficult time.  Froneman added:  “Without fail, every Chamber member understands the debilitating trust deficit that exists and we are debating how best to resolve it… There is no other way for us all to align behind a new, common vision and without it we will not have a sustainable industry."
