    South Africa's AMCU union to expand Sibanye-Stillwater strike to platinum operations

    South Africa's Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) is planning to strike at Sibanye-Stillwater's (SGLJ.J) local platinum operations, it said on Monday, expanding an earlier stoppage affecting its gold facilities. Since the union downed tools at Sibanye's gold operations in mid-November, four employees have been killed during strike-related violence and the firm has said it expected to miss its 2018 bullion output forecast. AMCU said on Monday that the new strike would begin on Jan. 22 and involve around 12,500 of its members.

    Gold Barrels Into 2019 as Growth Concerns Spur Demand for Haven

    A weakening dollar in December aided the rally amid expectations the Federal Reserve will dial back the pace of rate increases next year. “For gold prices, I think there is upside to be seen in 2019,” Jingyi Pan, market strategist at IG Asia Pte., told Bloomberg TV on Monday, citing prospects for fewer tightening moves from the U.S. central bank. Prices held their ground even after U.S. President Donald Trump struck an upbeat tone on his trade dispute with China, one of the lingering threats to growth going into next year.

    Zimbabwe to allow two new companies to mine diamonds

    Zimbabwe will now allow two more private companies to explore and mine diamonds in the country, bringing to four the number of firms that will operate in the sector, mines minister Winston Chitando has said. Last week Chitando said the country did not plan to change its ownership rules for diamonds and platinum, denting hopes among some miners the country will open up ownership as it announces mineral frameworks in coming weeks. In a video posted on the Information Ministry official Twitter page on Tuesday, Chitando told reporters that cabinet had adopted a new diamond policy that would see two more private companies being allowed to explore and mine diamonds.
