Rustenburg - Lonmin Marikana mineworkers released from prison re-grouped and gathered at the Nkaneng informal settlement with their colleagues on Tuesday to map a way forward.

The group arrived on Monday night after they were released by the Ga-Rankuwa Magistrate's Court.

They smiled, laughed and shook hands while waiting for the rest of the miners to arrive.

Over 200 striking mineworkers had already gathered at Nkaneng by 08:00.

Negotiations between the workers representatives, mine management and the department of labour stalled as workers demanded nothing less than a R12 500 wage increase.

Talks were set to resume on Wednesday in Rustenburg.
