The miner received a letter last week from the DMR detailing the areas that it had neglected, company spokesperson Wendy Tlou indicated.  She did not specify which requirements Lonmin had not met, but said the company was talking to the government and would ask for extensions where applicable.  "Everybody is concerned that we do meet the requirement to retain your licence to operate.  It's not something that is causing us massive worry," Tlou added.
