Johannesburg - Impala Platinum Holdings [JSE:IMP], the
world’s second-largest platinum producer, said most workers were not reporting
for duty at its Rustenburg mine on Tuesday because of labour unrest.
Police earlier said protests had flared up at an informal
settlement near the Rustenburg operation which was shut for six weeks earlier
this year because of a turf war between rival unions, costing Implats 120,000
ounces in lost output.
