Lonmin has lost millions in share value since the illegal strike for higher wages began Aug. 10. It has said it probably will not be able to meet debt obligations due in a month.
Lonmin said only 5.7 percent of its work force reported Friday. It said there has been intimidation of workers and that most are probably awaiting the results of a peace accord being negotiated with the Department of Labor and trade unions.
The funerals of many of those killed are to take place this weekend.
