MARIKANA, South Africa, Sept 14 (Reuters) - Striking miners at Lonmin 's Marikana platinum mine rejected a pay offer from management on Friday, dashing hopes for an end to a five-week strike.

The strikers gathered on a rocky outcrop near the mine said Lonmin's offer was well below the 12,500 rand (${esc.dollar}1,500) they are demanding to return to work.
