Johannesburg - South African bullion producer Harmony Gold said on Wednesday it was delaying the post-holiday restart of its Kusasalethu mine west of Johannesburg following violence and protests there at the end of 2012.

“Management has decided to review the financial and operational status of the mine following the violence and unlawful actions in December and will be able to provide a proper update towards the end of the week or early next week,” said spokesperson Marian van der Walt. -Reuters
