    Amplats announces first dividend in seven years, plans no big projects this year

    Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) (AMSJ.J), the world's top platinum producer, announced its first dividend in seven years on Monday as full-year headline earnings more than doubled and said it was not committing capital to major projects in 2018. Amplats' investment stance highlights the fragile state of platinum mining in South Africa, home to around two-thirds of known reserves, where for years the industry has battled soaring costs, depressed prices, policy uncertainty and bouts of violent labour and social unrest. South Africa's Chamber of Mines said on Sunday it had agreed to postpone a court challenge against a new version of an industry charter, which among other things raises targets for black ownership, to allow for talks with newly sworn-in South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.

    S.Africa's rand slumps to 2-week low after ANC says no discussions on early Zuma exit

    South Africa's rand weakened as much as 1.7 percent in midday trade on Wednesday to its worst in nearly three weeks after the ruling African National Congress said an early exit for President Jacob Zuma had not been discussed at a party meeting. Initially hit by softening demand for emerging market assets as global bond yields picked up, the rand's losses accelerated to a session-low 12.55 shortly after the ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule told reporters Zuma's removal was not on the agenda of a meeting of the party's top decision-making body. At 1100 GMT the rand was 1.4 percent weaker at 12.5075 per dollar, slightly better than the slide to its weakest level since Dec. 26.
