Xstrata (XSRAY.PK, XSRAF.PK) is the latest miner to be hit by the strike that has already shut some of South Africa's biggest gold and platinum mines (I, II, III). Xstrata says about half of the 886 employees at its Eland mine went on strike Friday and have since blocked the entrance to the mine, stopping production at the 210 oz./day platinum mine.
