Reuters reported that Anglo American Platinum Ltd. (LSE:AAL) is losing about 3,100 ounces of production per day as a result of the strike affecting its South African operations. That is equivalent to about $4.3 million each day.
As quoted in the market news:
‘The company continues to record a low turnout at its Rustenburg and the North of the Pilanesburg operations, with less than 20 percent attendance,’ Amplats said in a statement.
The lost output is equal to $4.3 million a day at the current spot price of $1,380 an ounce, according to Reuters calculations.
Talks with the union to end the strike are continuing, Amplats said.
