Demanding the Impossible? Platinum mining profits and wage demands in context - This is an interim public interest report on platinum mining financials with three aims. First, it seeks to set the current industrial conflict in the sector in a longer-term context of value produced by the three largest platinum miners, Anglo American Platinum, Impala Platinum and Lonmin, and its subsequent distribution. In doing so, it poses questions over whether the mining workforce and South African society have benefited enough (and could benefit more) from the country’s mineral wealth. Second, it seeks to set the cost of current wage demands made by the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) in this context. Strike action by AMCU in the platinum sector has continued for over four months, but public debate on the strike has been narrowed by the foregrounding of certain sets of financial data to the exclusion of others. This paper was written with the intention of broadening the debate. Third, it suggests that the strike highlights longer-term policy issues which require urgent attention.
