VANCOUVER AND JOHANNESBURG, Oct. 10 /CNW/ - Uranium One Inc. today
announced that it has temporarily suspended mine operations at the Dominion
Uranium Project in South Africa.
Today's action follows labour disruptions this week at the Project, which
culminated in a general illegal strike. Notwithstanding repeated Company
directives to end the strike and a court order issued yesterday by the Labour
Court of South Africa prohibiting the continuation of the illegal strike, a
majority of the labour force at Dominion has refused to return to work. In
light of the refusal to comply with the court order, the Company has today
begun the process of issuing termination notices to the striking workers at
Dominion. In the meantime, the Company is actively exploring all options
available to it at Dominion.
No stock exchange, securities commission or other regulatory authority
