Production at Kenmare Resources’ Moma mine in Mozambique has been temporarily suspended due to an unofficial strike by workers.
The industrial action commenced this morning after annual wage negotiations broke down. The Irish mining company said talks were progressing when an unofficial strike was called by a group of employees.
Kenmare, employee representatives and officials from the Ministry of Mines and the Ministry of Labour are now working towards an early resolution of the issues, said a statement issued by the company this morning.
The demands of the workers are, as yet, unclear.
Only last week, Kenmare said Moma was operating well and production was broadly in line with expectations.
