Johannesburg - There was no clear indication of whether striking mineworkers at Anglo Gold Ashanti's Mponeng mine would return to work as requested, the company said.

"We will only be able to see when the night shift is scheduled to start work," spokesperson Alan Fine said.

During a meeting at the mine, outside Fochville in the North West, on Friday, the company distributed pamphlets, urging workers to end their unprotected strike.

In the pamphlet, Mponeng general manager Randel Fadermann appealed to miners return to work.

"As we are approaching a new week, I urge you all to report to your place of work on Monday, [so] we can start working towards a safe and sustainable future together."

Fine said the situation remained quiet over the weekend.

On Friday, hundreds of mineworkers gathered on a hilltop at the Mahalesuku informal settlement near the mine.

They were told that their representatives would meet unions to discuss their demands.

On Tuesday, AngloGold Ashanti and other gold companies would meet organised labour at the Chamber of fines to work on an agreement to fast-track the negotiation process.

Workers downed tools on 25 September, demanding a monthly salaries of R18 500.
