Anglo American update re. Anglo American Platinum
Anglo American plc draws attention to an announcement issued by Anglo American Platinum
Limited, the text of which is set out below:
Incident at Siphumelele mine in Rustenburg
An incident occurred today at our Siphumelele mine in the Rustenburg area, involving members
of the Workers Committee and NUM shop stewards. Workers committee members are
contesting NUM’s legitimacy at the mine and demanding that NUM vacate its offices. The
Company is currently in the process of validating union membership at Rustenburg and the
mines north of the Pilanesburg.
A total of nine employees were injured when rubber bullets were fired by Anglo American
Platinum security personnel. As they were attempting to evacuate the NUM shop stewards who
were trapped in their offices, three security personnel sustained minor injuries during this
incident. All 12 injured employees received medical attention for non-life threatening injuries.
No one was fatally injured during this incident.
Anglo American Platinum expresses its deep concern about this incident and appeals for its
employees to remain calm and respect the Company’s dispute resolution process.
