Load shedding at Implats` operations                                            
Implats received a communique from Eskom this morning advising that             
electric power could not be guaranteed at its operations.  Due to safety        
concerns, management has taken the decision to withdraw the workforce and       
cancel the day shift at Impala Rustenburg.  Operations at Marula will           
continue normally, unless load shedding is applied.  In this event the          
workforce will be evacuated in line with normal procedures.  The refineries     
in Springs will not be affected.  The impact of this stoppage is in the         
order of 3,500 ounces of platinum per day.
