Johannesburg - Anglo American Platinum expects it will take about two weeks for the company to resume significant output after a 5-month work stoppage at the world's biggest producer of the metal, its chief executive said on Wednesday.

“I reckon in about two weeks we'll start seeing meaningful production,” Chris Griffiths, Amplats chief executive, told Talk Radio 702.

Amplats, along with rivals Lonmin and Impala Platinum signed wage deals with the Amcu union on Tuesday, bringing an end to the longest and costliest labour strike in South African history. - Reuters
