A hefty $87.5m impairment against its suspended Vele colliery pushed MC Mining, formerly Coal of Africa Ltd (CoAL), into a deep interim loss, overshadowing the inflow of revenue and a gross profit stemming from its purchase of the Uitkomst Colliery. MC Mining, which changed its name and conducted a share consolidation to deal with the legacies of its years as CoAL, reported a loss for the six months to end-December of $97m versus a $13m loss in the prior year period.
As the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) steps up its campaign against Sibanye-Stillwater’s all-share bid for Lonmin, threatening to interdict the deal, the gold and platinum company lodged its submission for the transaction with the Competition Commission. Sibanye launched the bid in mid-December, issuing an announcement on the JSE’s news service as well as hosting a joint media conference with Lonmin, which is deep in debt and struggling to comply with its debt covenants.
Judge Rabie ordered that Baroda give the NPA and the director-general of the Department of Mineral Resources copies of all agreements and documentation in the determination of interest rates for the two trust funds, which by law have to be ringfenced and used only for rehabilitation when a mine is at the end of its life.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
