AMCU and other unions were involved in the 2012 Marikana miners’ strike which ended in a massacre.

The union said this following its recent decision to strike at South Africa's top three platinum producers.

"We will send notices to gold as well today," AMCU spokesman Jimmy Gama told Reuters.

The world’s third largest platinum producer Lonmin said it had received notice from AMCU of its intention to strike from Thursday over wages.

AMCU is also expected to send strike notices to Lonmin's bigger rivals, Impala Platinum and Anglo American Platinum, as well as bullion producers AngloGold Ashanti, Harmony Gold and Sibanye Gold.
