More woe for Lonmin
Wednesday 29 August 2012
The British-owned platinum miner Lonmin said that 8 per cent of its workers turned up for work yesterday at its Marikana mine in South Africa. That is an 80 per cent plus drop on the numbers who returned to work at the beginning of last week following violence which saw 44 people killed. At one stage almost a third of the 28,000 workforce had reported for work last week, Lonmin claimed.
The sharp fall means the company will struggle even more to reopen shafts which have now been closed for more than a fortnight.
