Twickenham mine, Anglo American`s youngest mining project, was experiencing difficulty with training operators correctly and efficiently on their mining machines. Their operators were installing an average of two to three roof bolts per shift instead of the required 20. They were also taking needless risks that could cause personal injury and serious damage to the equipment in order to increase production. The solution came in the form of 5DT`s Simulator Base (SimBase™) systems. This advanced training tool helps to make operators Safer, more Productive and less Destructive. Simulators allow operators and instructors to focus on training without the unnecessary risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment. Anglo Twickenham adjusted their training cycles to include 5DT`s simulators. An immediate change could be observed through individual operator improvement. One such instance involved a Roof Bolter operator who was unable to operate the machine even after two months of training. But, after only a week of training on 5DT's simulators, the operator was declared a capable driver. With simulator training Anglo managed to eliminate all risky behaviour, and increased production to the desired 20 bolts per operator per shift -- a production improvement of 500%. "My vision is to have a simulator cab for every machine available because it shortens and optimizes the training time and provides us with a competent operator. All you need is somebody that has got a passion for training, a passion for machines, and then most of all, passion for simulation. Simulation is the way forward." - Evert Kleynhans, Human Resources Development Specialist Find out more at http://www.5dt.com/

Various of security fencing being worked on 6. Mid of Anglo Platinum train STORYLINE: Disgruntled mine workers began gathering at an Anglo American Platinum mine in Rustenburg on Wednesday, a day after the world's largest platinum producer said it would close some of its operations, sell one mine in South Africa, and cut 14-thousand jobs. The announcement, made on Tuesday, comes just months after South African mining strikes in turned violent, killing dozens of people. Anglo American Platinum said a nearly year-long review found that four mine shafts needed to be closed and one mine sold because of unprofitable operations. The government's minister of mines and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) expressed surprise and shock at the announcement. Disgruntled workers gathered on Wednesday outside the Khomanani 1 Shaft, one of the shafts due for closure at the mine. Some 46 people were killed during a six-week period of violent strikes at Lonmin's platinum mine last year in Marikana, South Africa, when miners demanded higher wages. In the most shocking incident, police fired into a crowd of striking miners near the Marikana mine on August 16, killing 34 people. The labour unrest spread in South Africa, and Anglo American Platinum, known locally as Amplats, saw a more than eight-week strike that crippled the giant at its operation in Rustenburg, about 100 kilometres (60 miles) northwest of Johannesburg. The company had fired 12-thousand workers and then agreed to reinstate them in October, though the miners did not return to work until November. Amplats on Tuesday said that 13-thousand of the jobs it wants to cut are in the Rustenburg region. Anglo American Platinum said it takes its social responsibilities to its laid-off workforce seriously, and would try to create 14-thousand new jobs focused on housing, infrastructure and small business development. The mining industry is a huge part of the economy in South Africa, which is the world's largest producer of platinum, gold and chromium. Most mine workers who carry out manual labour are black. The South African Institute of Race Relations says that the unemployment rate for black South Africans was nearly 41 percent in 2012, while the corresponding rate for white South Africans was 7.5 percent.

SOUNDBITE (English) Gaddafi Mdoda, miners strike leader: "This is the division that Anglo is making between us the black people, us the working class. So bad things are going to happen and I am not sure if Anglo American and the leaders of the land in South Africa are going to take the responsibility of that blood that is going to be shed." 7. Wide mine workers marching towards the Blesbok stadium STORYLINE Hundreds of miners marched through Rustenburg, South Africa, on Saturday, protesting at the news that 12-thousand of their colleagues at the Anglo-American platinum mines had been dismissed overnight. A now familiar sight across South Africa's platinum belt, the miners sang, chanted and carried placards denouncing Anglo's decision to fire the striking miners. The miners were fired for staging an unlawful strike that is one of several that are slowly paralysing South Africa's crucial mining sector. About 80-thousand miners, representing 16 percent of the country's mine workforce, are currently striking in a wave of work stoppages that have serious economic and political implications for South Africa. Strike leader Gaddafi Mdoda warned on Saturday that Anglo American's actions would lead to serious repercussions. "Bad things are going to happen and I am not sure that Anglo American and the leaders of the land in South Africa are going to take the responsibility of the blood that is going to be shed," said Gaddafi Mdoda, one of the leaders of the striking miners. Miners at the Anglo platinum mine outside Rustenburg have been on strike for up to 5 weeks, demanding higher wages. On Saturday, the miners began gathering at the Blesbok stadium just outside Rustenburg to discuss their reaction to the mass dismissals. Despite recent violence around the stadium and a heavy police presence there on Saturday, there were no reports of violence on Saturday morning.

(www.abndigital.com) Anglo American Platinum's output would likely be flat in 2012 after it fell short of its target last year due to a spike in safety stops. The group said that it planned to refine and sell between 2.5 and 2.6 million ounces of platinum in 2012. Amplats' full year headlines earnings per share fell almost 30 percent to 1,365 cents. To decide whether Amplats is hot or not are Simon Brown from Justonelap and Tshepo Modiba from Cannon Asset Managers.
