Lonmin says many striking miners have indicated via text messages that they want to accept the latest pay offer.

Many striking miners at Lonmin indicated via text messages that they want to accept the latest pay offer and return to work, according to the platinum producer.

However, Lonmin spokesperson Sue Vey told Reuters that the exact numbers would not be compiled before the end of the week or early next week.

She said workers could sign an "intention form" at company premises or the offices of TEBA, a mine recruitment agency with offices in regions from where much of the mine labour force hails, such as rural parts of the Eastern Cape.

Earlier on Tuesday the leader of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu), Joseph Mathunjwa, said union members have rejected the wage offer.
