Thursday, 30 May 2013 09:46am EDT 

Reuters reported that Glencore Xstrata PLC said three of its chrome mines in South Africa were at a standstill after up to 1,500 workers embarked on an illegal strike. The dispute at the mines near Steelpoort, northeast of Johannesburg in the Limpopo province, adds to long-running friction in the mining industry that has caused production to slow, raised concerns. 'The strike started on May 28, 2013 and all three mines are not in operation,' said Glencore Xstrata chrome spokesman Christopher Tsatsawane. 'We have dismissed 200 employees at Helena mine after they failed to return to work after three ultimatums.' He said more employees could be dismissed.
