Sibanye Mine Rings Changes, Thousands of Jobs on Chopping Block

Sibanye-Stillwater Mine merged with Lonmin in the North West Province, a mine that drew world attention during the Marikana mine massacre in which 30 miners were killed by police during protests over wage increases. Despite opposition from surrounding mining communities the merger went ahead and the mine will now retrench over 5,000 miners but it could have been more, writes Ed Stoddard for Daily Maverick
