Johannesburg - Kumba Iron Ore [JSE:KIO] is losing 120 000 tonnes of finished product per day due to an illegal strike at its Sishen mine, the producer of the steel-making ingredient said on Monday.

The company, a unit of global miner Anglo American [JSE:AGL], added that it had sufficient production from other mines and stockpiles to continue supplying its customers until mid-October.

Kumba, one of the world's top 10 producers of iron ore and the largest in Africa, suspended operations at the mine on October 4 after striking employees had blocked access to the pit.
