Johannesburg - AngloGold Ashanti [JSE:ANG], the world’s
third largest gold producer, has suspended operations at its TauTona mine in
South Africa due to a worker sit-in protest over a bonus payment, the company
said on Friday.
“There are about 300 people doing a sit-in underground.
Management is talking to them,” company spokesperson Alan Fine said.
Another sit-in at AngloGold’s Mponeng mine ended on
Thursday, but operations there are only expected to resume on Sunday night as some
repairs need to be done, Fine added.
