Kumba losing 120,000 tonnes daily from S.Africa strike
JOHANNESBURG, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Kumba Iron Ore is losing 120,000 tonnes of finished product per day due to an illegal strike at its Sishen mine in South Africa, the producer of the steel-making ingredient said on Monday.
The company, a unit of global miner Anglo American , added that it had sufficient production from other mines and stockpiles to continue supplying its customers until mid-October.
Kumba, one of the world's top 10 producers of iron ore and the largest in Africa, suspended operations at the mine on Oct. 4 after striking employees had blocked access to the pit.
