• Conflict over water, coal

    SA's leaders have upped their support of the water-intensive coal industry, says Keith Schneider.

  • Cost of doing business

    The world can't afford the $4.7trn a year in environmental costs of business, says Mandi Smallhorne.

  • Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

AngloGold back at full steam

Nov 14 2012 20:14

Johannesburg - Workers at AngloGold Ashanti's Mponeng mine have ended their illegal strike, bringing all the firm's six operations into full production after weeks of stoppages, the company said on Wednesday.

Workers at the mine south of Johannesburg had staged underground sit-ins, demanding monthly wage increases of up to R18 500.

The strike, which began on 25 September, was ended by both sides signing an agreement governing "safe work and labour relations."

It was not clear if the world's third largest gold producer offered any cash incentive.

"The return to work at Mponeng was based on the same wages and working conditions applicable at the company’s other South African operations," the company said.

AngloGold Ashanti employs about 35 000 people across its South African operations, and has a presence in Australia, the United States and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
