Johannesburg - All was quiet at Gold Fields [JSE:GFI] mines on Sunday, where workers have embarked on an illegal strike, the company said.

"The situation is very quiet at the moment," said spokesperson Sven Lunsche.

"The night shift starts at 9pm but we don't expect workers to show up. We are also not sure if they will return to the hostels."

Workers embarked on an illegal strike last month at the Gold Fields KDC West mine in Carletonville and Beatrix mines, demanding a monthly pay of R12 500 after deductions.

On Wednesday, thousands of protesting miners gathered on a koppie outside the mine property carrying sticks, pipes, and axes.

However, workers had handed over their sticks and knobkerries since the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) asked them to do so, as these were seen as a threat to peace.
