Talks break down between South Africa's top three gold producers and striking miners, failing to reach agreement on pay proposals. Strikes have shut all seven of AngloGold's (AU -1.7%) South African mines, which account for about a third of its total production; two of Gold Fields' (GFI -1%) mines and one operated by Harmony (HMY -0.5%) also are closed.
