Zikalala says they'll meet again with management at the mine and the community's traditional leaders:

"We are grateful that the concerned stakeholders remain committed and supportive of the role of government to play the resolution and facilitate the dispute," he says. 

Two mineworkers were shot last month by cable thieves after it had reopened. 

RBM workers were targeted during a community dispute late last year.
