Anglo American Platinum Limited (JSE:AMS) will spin off South African mines it has been seeking to dispose of into a separately listed company, according to the UASA labor union. AMS told the union of its decision June 17, 2015, Franz Stehring, head of mining at the UASA, said by phone. The organization mainly represents higher-skilled workers at the mining company. A listing will take about nine months to complete, he said. AMS is seeking to exit four aging, labor-intensive mines in South Africa amid a 39% plunge in platinum prices since 2011. Amplats has previously said it’s still deciding whether to sell the mines or list them separately. “We’ll be making an announcement this quarter on which exit route we will be taking,” Mpumi Sithole, spokeswoman of AMS, said by phone.
