Striking miners gather at the AngloGold Ashanti mine in Carletonville, northwest of Johannesburg October 18, 2012. Striking miners at one of Gold Fields' South African operations returned to work on Thursday, but there was no end in sight to the country's worst wildcat walkouts since the end of apartheid due to renewed unrest at Lonmin's Marikana mine.
