WORK STOPPAGE AT IMPALA RUSTENBURG                                              
Implats confirms that there is a work stoppage at the company`s Rustenburg      
Operations.  The stoppage involves most underground employees.                  
This stoppage occurred despite the union`s suspension of its strike notice over 
the weekend following the agreed wage settlement of a 10% increase to all       
unionised employees.                                                            
The situation is exacerbated by the fact that no demands have been made of      
management by the striking workers.  The work stoppage appears to be related to 
communication between the union and its members.                                
Both Marula and the Refining operations continue to run as normal.  Further     
announcements will be made in due course.
