Nine killed in Indonesia mining accident

first_img“Eight men and one woman went in to dig and were buried by a landslide. We evacuated their bodies early this morning,” district spokesman Firdaus Firman told AFP. Three people keeping watch reported the accident to local officials when the group failed to emerge from the mine. The victims were local farmers digging the gold without proper equipment or protective gear. The location and the rainy weather also hampered rescue efforts. “All victims are accounted for and there’s no more missing,” Firman said, adding that police and the local disaster agency are investigating. Illegal and unlicensed mines are prevalent across mineral-rich Indonesia and the scene of frequent accidents. In early 2019 at least 16 people were buried alive when a mine collapsed in the Bolaang Mongondow region of North Sulawesi, where five miners were killed a few months earlier in a similar accident.Topics : Nine people were killed by a landslide at an illegal gold mine in Sumatra, an Indonesian official said Sunday. The accident happened Saturday in South Solok in West Sumatra province when a group of 12 people were digging for gold at an abandoned mine. The area has several abandoned mines from the colonial era. last_img read more

UK local authority pension fund merger gets go-ahead

first_imgIn the consultation document, MHCLG said the funds projected that 50% of the newly merged fund would be under Border to Coast’s management by 31 March 2023, and 60% by 31 March 2025.The administering authorities have previously estimated the merger would enable administration and governance savings of around 10-12% per annum.David Davison, head of charity and public sector services at Spence & Partners, said the approval of the merger was “to be greatly welcomed and will hopefully be the start of many more similar arrangements adding value and consistency in the sector”.“There are too many small LGPS in the UK who cannot benefit from the economies of scale of larger funds so are not serving the tax payer, or indeed their members, as well as they might,” he said, adding that transition costs needed to be effectively managed to ensure maximum value was derived from the merger.As at the end of March 2019, the Tyne and Wear pension fund had £8.8bn (€9.8bn) in assets under management, and Northumberland £1.4bn.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here. The UK government has approved the merger of the Northumberland and Tyne and Wear local authority pension funds, the former being one of the smallest funds in the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) in England and Wales.The decision follows a consultation on the merger that drew three supportive responses, with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) today also saying the joint application that had been submitted last year “set out a strong case for the merger of the two pension funds”.The merger is intended to facilitate efficiencies and economies of scale, and will build on existing collaboration between the pension funds, which have been operating a shared pensions administration service for two years.Both pension funds participate in the Border to Coast Pensions Partnership, one of the eight asset pooling vehicles in the LGPS. According to the MHCLG document, the plan has been for Northumberland’s assets to be transferred to the pool at the same time as they are aligned with Tyne and Wear’s new target investment strategy.last_img read more
