South Africa's competition court to rule on Sibanye and Lonmin merger

South Africa's Competition Appeals Court will rule next week on a union request to block the mining deal in which Sibanye-Stillwater intends to acquire rival Lonmin, legal counsel said on Friday.

The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) lodged its appeal in protest against job cuts related to the deal.
