AngloGold: Strike fails to halt Mali mines

Comment on this story

AngloGold Ashanti’s Yatela and Sadiola mines in Mali were operating normally yesterday even after about 2 000 workers employed by contractors went on strike. “A minority of employees” took part in the walkout that started on Monday, AngloGold said. The employees wanted AngloGold to pay the medical costs and 24 months’ salary of those made redundant because of illnesses contracted while working, labour federation Synacome said. Shares rose 3.5 percent to close at R185.50. – Bloomberg
