A strike at Gold Fields' KDC west, near Carletonville, on the West Rand continued on Monday, company spokesman Sven Lunsche said.
“Workers did not return to work,” Lunsche said.
The company would continue to try and talk to the majority union, the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM), which represents the workers who are on strike.
It represents around 80 percent of the 15,000 employees who are not working.
“We are hoping to make progress soon,” he said.
Lunsche said it might go a little slower than hoped because the NUM's national leadership would be at the Congress of SA Trade Unions' 11th national conference in Midrand.
The weekend was generally quiet, but two miners who tried to go to work on Sunday were violently assaulted.
“There were incidents of intimidation last night,” Lunsche said.
“They are fine for now. They have received treatment,” he said.
The strike began last Sunday.
The mine loses 1400 ounces of gold production for every day of the strike.
The company obtained a Labour Court interdict declaring the strike unprotected last week. This means legal protective processes related to an industrial dispute were not followed. - Sapa
