Forced to close

Anglo Platinum, the world's biggest platinum producer, said on Friday it expected to lose up to 1300 ounces of refined platinum a day after it closed two more shafts at its largest mine. Angloplat, which closed one shaft at the mine on Wednesday after a miner was killed in a rockfall, said on Friday it had been ordered by the Department of Minerals and Energy to close two more shafts at the mine for safety reasons. The shafts were closed on Thursday.- Reuters
