London - Gold priced in rand hit a record high on Thursday,
while the rand currency struggled at one-month lows against the US dollar, as a
wave of strikes continued to grip the country's mining industry.
Gold in rand rose by 1.8% to a record R15 185.80 an ounce.
So far this year, gold denominated in rand has risen by more than 20%, compared
with a 14.5% rise in the dollar price of gold, which on Thursday was trading at
$1 789 an ounce, near 11-month highs.
