Two of the world’s largest platinum producers have confirmed they can’t deliver to certain suppliers as production has been hit by ongoing strike action.
Lonmin and Anglo American Platinum have sent out a number of force majeure notices, which in effect exempts the miners from contractual obligations, on the basis the strike action is out of their control.
The strike action began on the 23rd of January after Lonmin and Anglo American rejected workers claims for an increase in basic salary to R12, 500.
