Xstrata fires 400 strikers at South Africa chrome mine

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Global diversified mining firm Xstrata has dismissed 400 workers involved in an illegal strike at its Kroondal chrome mine in South Africa, the company said on Friday.

The mine employs a total of 619 workers. The sacked miners have until 09:00 am EDT on Friday to appeal their dismissals.

"Most of production at Kroondal is down as we are operating with a minimal percentage of our staff," said Christopher Tsatsawane, spokesman at Xstrata's alloys unit.
