Platinum group metals miner Impala Platinum (Implats) reports that a July 14 work stoppage at its Rustenburg mine, initiated by labour union the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) had been resolved by the union on the same day.

Implats corporate affairs group executive Johan Theron tells Mining Weekly the stoppage came into effect for the first shift of July 14 (early hours of the morning), after AMCU-affiliated miners became disgruntled at the return-to-work of contract workers that had been protesting over the past couple of weeks.
