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.

We follow the young men coming to South Africa and risking their lives in the abandoned gold mines of Durban Deep. The gold mine is an hour outside Johannesburg and was closed down 12 years ago, after commercial mining companies moved on. Now illegal miners descend half a kilometre underground, through make-shift tunnels, and use explosives to blow apart the rock in search of gold. There are dangers both inside and outside the mines, local gangs control the area, and rapes and murders are now commonplace.

Gold is quickly becoming the new cocaine in Colombia. The precious metal is now the currency of choice for individuals and groups engaging in illicit trade in the South American country. That's because unlike cocaine, it's perfectly legal to carry gold, and unlike money, it's virtually untraceable. But there are some major side-effects of Colombia's new gold rush that locals are curiously quiet about: erectile dysfunction and brain damage. VICE News correspondent Monica Villamizar travelled to the Antioquia, Colombia, a hotbed of illegal gold mining, to investigate an unprecedented surge in impotence and neurological problems that experts are attributing to mercury, an essential gold-digging element.

According to Chamber of Mines (CoM) spokesperson Charmane Russell, the illegal mining industry "is believed to run into billions of rands yearly". It is often organised criminally and carried out under the auspices of organised criminal syndicates. "Illegal miners operate outside the law and are often heavily armed. The deaths are a frequent occurrence, but the number of victims is difficult to determine. The Zamazama's may operate in disused underground mines or trespass on operating mines, setting up ambushes and booby traps for employees, security guards and rival groups of illegal miners.

The South African city of Johannesburg was built on enormous gold reef. Today, many of the mines have closed, but criminal gangs continue to work the disused and abandoned tunnels. It is dangerous and often deadly, and as well as digging in the disused mines, heavily armed gangs also steal gold from the remaining working shafts. The decline of the gold mining sector, unemployment, illegal migration, and poverty have all contributed to the growth of this criminal activity. ★Subscribe to the News YouTube channel by clicking here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG81l00V3yiL5WRs3tcCzjQ?sub_confirmation=1 ★Please Like, share and comment my video!

This week, scientists were set to begin drilling a 750-meter-deep hole from the bottom of the Moab Khotsong mine, located some 180 kilometers southwest of Johannesburg, South Africa. Three years ago, a magnitude-5.5 earthquake erupted from a previously unknown fault beneath the mine. Aftershocks continue. The $1.6 million project, if successful, could reveal the internal workings of what may be a “fresh” fault: one that has experienced its first earthquake. Unsullied by previous quakes, the fault could yield new insights into how quakes unfold—and how humans can inadvertently trigger them. http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/05/deep-south-african-gold-mine-scientists-drill-heart-earthquake http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

“Visions of Gold” is a short color film on “Gold! The thread from which we weave our dreams! The key to stability!” Produced by South African film maker Emil Nofal in the mid-1960s, the film opens with rows of gold bars as the narrator Joe Stewardson explains how (in1 885) itinerant prospectors George Walker, along with George Harrison, stumbled on surface outcrops of gold-rich conglomerate on an old farm near the Witwatersrand basin —land that is now near the center of Johannesburg. (Both men quickly sold their claims for the equivalent of a few hundred dollars. Today, the gold fields in the region are worth billions.) From across the world, prospectors descended on South Africa in search of gold, as we see throngs of prospectors and opportunists starting at mark 02:45. Spurred on by visions of wealth, the fortune hunters eventually thought they had taken all the gold that was there, we are told. But at mark 06:10, Stewardson explains that more inventive prospectors at the turn of the 20th century found ways to dig deeper into the Earth in search of gold. The worldwide economic depression of the 1930s, we learn at mark 07:00, unraveled the fabric of prosperity. “The spinners of dreams all over the world now wore the dark cloth of despair.” Only the fantasy of gold remained, with South African workers eventually mining more than two miles into the ground in search of gold, as the camera plummets down a mine shaft. By mark 09:20, we see men maneuvering through tunnels and drilling into the Earth in search of deposits, and later watch as men turn the fruits of those labors into glistening gold bars.

Around 80,000 workers have been demanding an increase in their salaries, however their union has considerably lowered their demands. The National Union of Mineworkers, which represents two thirds of the miners, has asked for a 10 percent rise, a fraction of the 60 percent they had previously requested for some employees. South African President Jacob Zuma said: "Both sides must be ready to give, they must be ready to take as well, precisely because the strike and as you know the situation in the mining industry has not been good for quite a while". Workers last week rejected a six percent salary increase, the same as the current annual inflation rate.

The mining sector's often seen as the sunrise industry in South Africa but, there seems to be a decline in the gold sector with job losses continuing unabated. In February, Evander Gold Mine warned of 1,700 job cuts. AngloGold is set to shed 2,000 jobs. So should South Africa be worried about the decline of the sector? What can be done to boost it?

Men who were working illegally in an abandoned mine in South Africa were trapped Sunday, but rescue workers cleared the shaft entrance and at least 11 miners were escorted to safety Sunday, officials said. Some of the victims still below the surface in the gold mine shaft near Johannesburg appeared to be reluctant to emerge because of fears they would be arrested, emergency responder Kobus Du Plooy said by telephone from the scene. He said he did not know how many people were still in the shaft. Some of those who came out were dehydrated but in good spirits, Du Plooy said. Earlier, rescue vehicles and equipment were brought to the site to stabilize the ground before the rescue operation began. They were believed to have been trapped since Saturday morning and police patrolling in the area heard their screams for help, the South African Press Association reported. Rescue teams arriving at the scene were able to speak to about 30 miners near the top of the old shaft, whose entrance was covered by a large rock, the news agency said. Those miners said as many as 200 others were trapped further down a steep tunnel at the mine in Benoni, on the outskirts of South Africa's biggest city.
