The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is “extremely angry and shocked” at the “huge number of workers” that may be retrenched by AngloGold Ashanti at a time the country was being plagued by a high rate of unemployment. The gold miner on Wednesday announced that it would place its Savuka and Kopanang mines on care and maintenance and evaluate the integration of the TauTona mine into the Mponeng mine. This may result in as many as 8 500 employees being retrenched.
