Striking miners in South Africa have returned to work at Anglo American Platinum
, after a two-month work stoppage that crippled operations at the world's top platinum producer.
The company said Thursday production will not restart for at least a week while employees attend safety seminars.
Workers launched the strike in the September demanding higher wages amid a wave of similar actions by miners working for other companies in South Africa.
Anglo American, or Amplats, offered workers a one-time payment of $500 plus either an additional $70 monthly allowance or a monthly salary increase of $45.
The company told investors Wednesday that its earnings this year will be 20 percent lower than last year.
