Kumba Sishen unit declares force majeure in S.Africa
JOHANNESBURG, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Sishen Iron Ore, a unit of Kumba Iron Ore , has declared force majeure on its deliveries in South Africa following illegal strike action, ArcelorMittal South Africa said on Monday.
ArcelorMittal, which relies on Sishen for supplies of the steel-making ingredient, said its Saldanha plant will be negatively affected if the supply stoppage continues for more than one and a half weeks.
