Aquarius Platinum said on Tuesday all workers at its Everest mine in South Africa had returned to work following an agreement between management and employee representatives.

Both parties have resolved to work together to build a constructive climate of engagement in the future, the company said in a statement.

The company said it lost 1,950 ounces of PGMs as a result of an illegal strike by the workers. (Reporting by Serena Chaudhry)
