Africa's mining industry outlook 2017
 
55:54
Africa contains an estimated 30 per cent of the world's mineral resources. Natural resources have accounted for about 35 per cent of Africa's growth since 2000. Nonetheless, international investors and mining companies remain cautious, owing to Africa's never-ending challenges, including a lack of infrastructure, power and political instability, to name a few. On this CNBC Africa special we look back at 2016 and what trends we may see this year.

🇿🇦 What's the future of South Africa's mining sector? | Inside Story
 
24:56
South Africa has some of the world’s biggest reserves of platinum, gold, iron ore and coal. But mining now makes up less than 7% of its economic output, a steep fall from 20% in the 1970s. Mining companies are blaming low prices and soaring production costs for their plans to cut thousands of jobs at a time the country is struggling with high unemployment rates. Mining is also intertwined with race relations in South Africa. The people who work deep underground in often dangerous conditions are overwhelmingly black, while the executives overseeing them are mainly white. Some of the firms have pushed back against government plans to make them bring on more black shareholders. So, is it a losing battle for the mining sector? And can South Africa move away from its dependence on commodities? Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom Guests: Lebohang Pheko - Senior Research Fellow at Trade Collective - a non-profit think-tank.

South Africa's Illegal Gold Mines
 
10:37
In the 1970s, South Africa was the world's most prolific exporter of gold. Over the years, industrial decline has seen widespread closures of the mines across the country. However, Johannesburg sits on the biggest gold basin ever discovered. It's perhaps not surprising that many of these abandoned mines have seen a recent boom in illegal mining activity. Everyday, hundreds of illegal gold miners, known as Zama Zamas, descend kilometers deep beneath the surface. The miners often spend weeks underground, toiling away at the country's untapped gold reserves. Observers have suggested that illegal mining is now so widespread, black-market gold arguably supports the communities once subsistent on the very same mines they worked in before they shut down. The lack of policing in the mines has seen the practice go on largely unabated. However, in the absence of law enforcement, the extensive network of abandoned mines beneath the region has become an arena to deadly gang warfare between rival factions. VICE News visited illegal mines near Johannesburg, to meet the Zama Zamas risking life and limb everyday in the violent struggle for South Africa's illegal gold.

11 Most Massive Mines in the World
 
10:20
From the worlds largest gold mine found on the top of a mountain to the largest diamond mine in the world here are the most massive mines in the world! Subscribe to American EYE! 5.. Asbestos Mine, Canada Also known as the Jeffrey Mine, it’s located in Asbestos, Quebec and it was in operation until 2012. It’s a whopping 2 kilometers wide and 370 meters deep! Check out this thing on google maps and you can tell how completely massive this thing is! It’s the by far the largest asbestos mine in the world. For a long period of time, people would use this mineral to put into their walls and keep their homes from catching on fire! But recently there’s been a link with asbestos and a disease called mesothelioma, which is a lung condition. This is a toxic substance that people should avoid, so obviously this large mine went out of business. The lake at the bottom might look like an inviting blue, but you can bet your bottom dollar, it’s highly toxic! The small town that grew with the thriving asbestos industry feels like they’ve kind of lost their identity once the mine was forced to close, but people do still live there. 4. Mcarthur River Uranium Mine In case you were wondering which mine produces the most uranium in the world, that would be of course the Mcarthur River uranium mine in Saskatchewan Canada. This huge deposit was found in 1988 and finally a mining operation took place in 1997, when it began producing what’s known as Yellowcake. It’s not the kind of yellow cake you’d eat with your grandparents. This stuff has a horrific odor and basically what it is, is concentrated uranium powder which can then be used for powering nuclear reactors. We imagine this powdery substance is quite difficult to get ahold of. There aren’t a ton of photos of this place but, it does produce about 13 percent of the global uranium production across the globe. 3. Diavik Diamond Mine In case you thought it was Africa who had all the massive diamond mines, think again! The Diavik Diamond mine, found in the the northwest territories of Canada is one of the largest producers of diamonds in the Northern hemisphere and this place is pretty crazy! They annually produce 7 million carats of diamonds each year and you better believe it’s not easy to get here. The Diavik mine is found north of the arctic circle and it’s definitely cold! This photo here shows the subarctic landscapes that surround the diamond mine. You thought getting to work in the morning was tough for you? Imagine trying to get to work here! Just recently in 2015, this diamond produced what was known as the Diavik Foxfire 187.7 which is one of the largest rough gem quality diamonds ever produced. 2. Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposits at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. The construction of this in the frigid conditions of Siberia must have been grueling and downright cruel. Sources state that the machinery used at this mine had to be covered at night or it would freeze Are the diamonds worth freezing to death?! It’s unoperational today but Some claim that there’s still a bunch of diamonds in this mine and the whole thing could be worth about 12 Billion dollars. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. Bingham Copper Mine The bingham copper mine located near Salt Lake City Utah is home to the biggest pit in the world and it’s been in operation since 1903. It’s about 2.5 miles wide and if it were a stadium, it would be able to fit an estimated 9.5 million people. It keeps getting bigger and bigger too! Diligent workers can move about 250,000 tons of rock each day and it’s even become a tourist attraction in recent years before a massive landslide took place. Some claim that this was the biggest non volcanic landslide to take place in North American modern history. This photo we see here shows you the aftermath of this massive landslide and Bingham Copper mine and it makes you wonder how safe some of the conditions at these mines truly are. The landslides were so massive, that they actually triggered a few small earthquakes! Experts estimated that 165 tons of earth slide down from the top of the mine all the way to the bottom.

SOUTH AFRICA: GOLD MINING
 
03:08
English/Nat International gold sales recently plunged the price of the precious metal to a 22-year low. Despite protests from all quarters the sales are set to continue leaving the future of tens of thousands of South African miners hanging in the balance. This week South Africa's second largest gold miner, Gold Fields Ltd, announced that a strike against retrenchments at one of its mines may spread to other sites. When Britain sold 25 tons of gold recently, it set the price plummeting and some of South Africa's less profitable mines were forced to give notice of lay offs. Britain is scheduled to sell another 100 tons of gold by the end of this year. Recent protests by both South African mine companies and mineworkers unions appear to have fallen on deaf ears. The South African National Union of Mineworkers warned that if the gold price remains below 260 dollars an ounce, it would mean that 80-thousand gold miners would lose their jobs.. It's estimated that each miner supports another 10 people, so this loss could affect around 800-thousand South Africans livelihoods. Joe Funga has worked at the West Driefontein Mine for 17 years. A member of the mainly white Mineworkers Union, he has already made enquiries about his union's programme for laid off miners. Like other miners who live in company houses, Funga only pays 1.70 dollars a month to live in his house with his wife and two children. And if his job goes, so does his home. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I'm not feeling very happy about it because the whole issue is, what do you call it, got an effect on our families and got an effect on the people in the shafts, from a miner to an omsetter (fitter and turner) and the artisans as well." SUPER CAPTION: Joe Funga, Gold Miner Funga starts work at 4a-m where he is in charge of three gangs of about 10 miners each. For them the mine's tunnels are their world and they've long accepted the inhospitable conditions. It also provides them with a livelihood in a country wracked by unemployment. For at least eight hours a day Funga joins his colleagues and descends 800 metres under the earth where they retrieve the rock that produces gold. Since July 15th workers at another mine in the Free State province workers have downed tools and brought production to a complete halt. They are protesting the imminent laying off of 600 workers. Next week a neighbouring mine, Beatrix may also join the strike in support of its colleagues. For another Gold Mine it seems that it's already too late. E-R-P-M east of Johannesburg, is set to close and 5-thousand workers will lose their jobs. Back at Crown Mine one of Funga's workmates, Sabata Moeane is a member of the mainly black National Union of Mineworkers. Recently he's also been investigating alternative employment possibilities should he be laid off. The National Union of Mineworkers is suggesting ways of laid-off miners becoming self-employed should they lose their jobs. With South Africa's high rate of unemployment, it may be the only solution for people like Moeane and Funga. Moeane has been working on the mine for ten years and lives near the mine site with his wife and four children, also in a company house. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think at this point in time we are really in a catastrophic position because the gold price has declined tremendously and that can cost our jobs." SUPER CAPTION: Sabata Moeane, Gold Miner Miners such as Joe Funga and Sabata Moeane can only hope that their jobs will survive the the current Gold crisis.

12,000 Fired Following Strike Against Platinum Mining Company

Anglo American Platinum in South Africa fired 12,000 workers for taking part in an unauthorized strike. Full Story: South Africa's Anglo American Platinum, also known as Amplats, fired 12,000 workers Friday for participating in an unauthorized strike. The move is an effort by the world's largest platinum producer to push back after a number of strike-induced production stoppages earlier this year. Hundreds of miners who clashed with police on Friday were eventually convinced to lay down their weapons—mainly sticks—and leave the demonstration site. The tensions between striking workers and mining companies have affected this and other industrial sectors worldwide. Friday's mass sacking triggered a sharp fall in the South African rand which closed down almost four percent.

However during negotiations last year, AMCU refused to sign a wage agreement, while the other three main unions went ahead. But over the weekend AMCU accepted a new offer by Sibanye Gold.

South Africa's Toxic Mine Dumps (2009)
 
22:57
Superdump: Toxic waste seeps into the environment from South African mine dumps. December 2009 For downloads and more information visit: http://journeyman.tv/59894/documentary-films-archive/superdump.html After 120 years of gold mining, the land and water on Gautengs far West Rand are some of the most polluted in the country. The mine dumps that dot the area west of Johannesburg have been identified as public health risks. One of the biggest problems is uranium seeping into the watercourses, turning the sediment both poisonous and radioactive. Ecologists, the community and the mines all agree that the mine dumps must go. But no-one can agree what to do with them. This edition of Special Assignment takes a look at community resistance against two proposals to reprocess the mine dumps and relocate the resulting waste. Communities are clashing with the mines over two proposed superdumps mega-mine dumps proposed for Fochville and Randfontein. Should these communities suffer for the health of the entire region? And what impact will these superdumps have on food security?
