Pretoria — North West Premier Thandi Modise will on Wednesday lead a delegation from the provincial government in talks with Lonmin management on the company's refinancing process, challenges and responsibilities post Marikana and the Lonmin Renewal Plan.

The meeting is set to start at 10am on Wednesday, 23 January, at the Office of the Premier's Malibongwe Boardroom in Ga-Rona Building in Mmabatho.
