Wage negotiations between Lonmin management, unions and striking miners from its Marikana operation will continue on Monday.
The workers rejected an increase offer on Friday, forcing both parties to return to talks in an attempt to end the almost six-week long illegal strike.
Striking miners said they were offered a R986 increase, which means an entry-level worker will earn a monthly salary of R5500.
The North West workers rejected the offer, saying it was part of an existing agreement to be put into effect in October.
Lonmin said entry level workers would get a 16 percent hike - while rock drill operators - the majority of those who have downed tools, would get a 21 percent increase.
That would see their total guaranteed package increase by over R1800 a month.
Mining bosses insist the R12 500 wage demand is unaffordable and would result in a trade-off between wages and jobs.
Miners are expected to stay away from work again today, as negotiations continue.
Their strike has been dogged by violence which has left 45 people dead.
Meanwhile, the South African Council of Churches (SACC) urged miners to report for work while wage negotiations were underway.
SACC president Bishop Joe Seoka on Sunday said a solution beneficial to all is likely to be found, now that all stakeholders and representatives are involved in talks.
