Johannesburg - Gold mining houses and unions were looking for ways to get the remaining group of illegally striking workers to report for duty, the Chamber of Mines said on Thursday.

"The various gold mining houses under the auspices of the Chamber of Mines, today (Thursday) met separately with the National Union of Mineworkers, Solidarity and Uasa, to explore ways in which the remaining strikes in the gold industry can be brought to an end," chamber senior executive Elize Strydom said in a statement.

Earlier on Thursday, Gold Fields' KDC West mine near Carletonville said about 80% of its 15 000 strikers had met a 2pm deadline to return to work.

"The unions have indicated that they will take the proposals made by the companies back to their members and encourage acceptance, with a view to ending the strikes," said Strydom.

She said the chamber was pleased that some workers had returned to work on Thursday.

"We are hoping that this trend will continue and that the industry will return to normality in the near future."
