SAFRICA-MINING-COMPANY-ANGLOAMERICAN

A small group of Anglo American Platinum workers who downed tools gather outside the Khomanani shaft, one of four the top global platinum producers, on January 16, 2013 in Rustenburg, northwest of Johannesburg. Amplats announced on January 15 it would close four shafts and sell a mine in sweeping restructuring, saying operations had become unsustainable. The vast majority of job cuts -- 13,000 in all -- would be made around Rustenburg. Last year's protests lead to the deaths of over 50 people, the majority strikers shot by police in one day of bloodshed at the Marikana platinum mine.
