MARIKANA, South Africa May 15 (Reuters) - South African platinum producer Lonmin said on Thursday it was considering going to court to stop a 16-week mining strike, because of the levels of violence faced by workers who want to return.

The company also said that some miners had turned up for work at its operations, but provided no numbers as efforts continued to end the longest and costliest stoppage in the sector's history. (Reporting by Zandi Shabalala; Writing by Ed Stoddard; Editing by David Dolan)
