The price of shares in FTSE 100 miner Anglo American (LON:AAL) tumbled 7.26% to 1,707.80p (as of 12:30 GMT) after it announced the closure of part of its chain of platinum processing facilities in South Africa. An explosion on 10th February damaged the converter plant and repairs are expected to be finished in Q2 2021.

As a consequence, the company has declared force majeure to customers and suppliers and while production from the company’s mine will continue, output guidance for the year has been revised downwards.

On 30th July at 1pm we’ll be holding the next live Q&A webinar with the Master Investor himself, Jim Mellon. Please share a question for Jim below and we’ll try to answer as many as possible in the live webinar. Sign up for the webinar here.
