Firmer world markets helped keep the JSE in the black by midday on Monday, offsetting losses in the gold-mining index that were sparked by negative news from Gold Fields. Gold Fields's share price weakened R2,81, or 2,43%, to R112,75 after it earlier reported that the current electricity crisis puts 6 900 Gold Fields jobs at risk.
