Transformation of South Africa's mining industry continues to pose a challenge to authorities, with Minister of Mineral Resources Ngoako Ramatlhodi having recently released the final mining charter report. The report found that only 6.3% of South African mining rights holders comply with the requirements of the Mining Charter. Major stakeholders within the sector including the Chamber of Mines and the National Union of Mineworkers attended, while AMCU boycotted the gathering. While Minister Ramatlhodi has announced that a sub-committee would be established to help curb retrenchments, AMCU is reported to be seeking a monthly wage of R12 500 in the gold mining sector, where workers are currently earning around R6 000 per month. But, how much can be said to be a decent wage for mineworkers?

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.

English/Nat Rescue workers began the grim task of hoisting the bodies of gold miners killed in an accident Wednesday night in Orkney, South Africa. At least 100 miners are believed to have been killed in the disaster when a locomotive plunged onto a cage carrying workers on the night shift. Some of the dead are thought to be from neighbouring countries, including Mozambique. Bodies are being brought up from the mine shaft in Orkney, where some 100 gold miners plunged to their deaths after a train fell on top of their elevator. Miners watched in shock as rescue workers carried mangled bodies and pieces of bodies wrapped in wool blankets out of the mine. Witnesses at the scene said survivors seemed impossible, since the two-floor lift fell 1.4 miles (2 kms) below the surface. The accident at the mine happened at the end of the night shift when workers piled into the elevator for the long ride to the surface. In Midrand, African leaders met for the World Economic Summit. Mozambique lends many workers to South Africa's huge mining industry, and its leader commented on the disaster. SOUNDBITE: "Since the changes started taking place we have had good conversations with the Chamber of Mines in order to see to it that conditions of work are improved for our miners working in South Africa are improved." SUPERCAPTION: Joacquim Chissano, Mozambican President Officials are saying it looks like human error caused the accident since the locomotive went through a safety barrier.

(15 Aug 2012) STORYLINE Hundreds of striking South African mine workers, who had gathered on a rocky cliff near their platinum mine, began singing war songs on Wednesday afternoon. Many brandished weapons such as pipes, clubs and machetes as they chanted and marched at a rocky outcropping within sight of a processing facility at the Lonmin PLC mine. Police and the military were at the scene but strikers said they had no quarrel with them. "We cannot afford to send our kids to school. All we want is money. Even though they have sent these police here, there is no point, because we are not fighting against anybody. All we want is money," said one mine worker, who refused to give his name. The unrest at the mine in Marikana, about 70 kilometres (40 miles) northwest of Johannesburg, began on Friday, when some 3,000 workers walked off the job over pay in what management described as an illegal strike. Those who tried to work on Saturday were attacked, according to management and the National Union of Mineworkers. On Sunday, the rage became deadly as a crowd killed two security guards there by setting their car ablaze, authorities said. By Monday, angry mobs had killed two other workers and overpowered police, killing two officers, officials said. Officers opened fire, killing three others, police said. On Tuesday the body of a middle-aged man who had been bludgeoned to death was found about 100 metres (yards) away from the miners. Police were investigating the crime, but the man appeared to be the 10th person killed at the Lonmin mine in unrest that is gripping South Africa's mining industry. Operations appeared to have come to a standstill as workers have stayed away from the mines, where 96 percent of all Lonmin's platinum production comes from. While Friday's walkout appeared to be about wages, the ensuing violence has been fuelled by the struggle between the dominant National Union of Mineworkers and the newer Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union. Disputes between the two unions escalated into violence earlier this year at another mine. Both unions have blamed each other for the killings and attacks at the mine. South Africa is one of the world's dominant producers of platinum, gold and chromium, but miners long have faced low salaries and poor working conditions. Apartheid kept black African workers from more lucrative jobs offered to whites. Though the nation became truly democratic in the 1990s, the salaries of black miners remain low.

Trade is better than aid for Africa. They say. In a journey through copper thieves and mine barons in the north of Zambia, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind that slogan. From a distance they look like ants, the hundreds of men digging holes in the rubble slopes of an old copper mine in Zambia. They are looking for copper ore in the walls of the enormous pit, without wearing helmets and without reinforcing the walls of their caves. Life-threatening, of course. But they find enough to live on. Is it legal, Bram asks. They laugh about it. No of course not. But the Chinese buyer does not really ask where they get their ore from. You just have to leave when the guards of the mine come. How different is it in a huge copper mine in full operation. Huge machines drive off and on. Sirens sound regularly, followed by explosions. Here, 300,000 tons of stone are moved every day, and the copper ore from it yields a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But it is a foreign company that raises that money. And if the productivity gets too low after about twenty years, the investors will move on. From the air it is easy to see how far-reaching it all is. The mine takes big chores out of the country and turns huge plains into a kind of lunar landscape. But other changes are also visible. Houses, schools, a golf course. Prosperity, therefore, emphasizes a mine boss. Seven years ago this was still a dull provincial town, and now look! A little further on the big changes are about to begin. There is a giant copper mine here, and for that an area of no less than four hundred square kilometers is expropriated. The new owners promise economic prosperity. Did not a city like Johannesburg also start out as a simple mine? Naturally, people living in the area can not stay. They have worked the land for generations, but they can not show ownership documents. They have not been asked anything. They do get compensation for their houses, chickens and fruit trees, but not for the ground. "Everything under the ground is state property," says a representative of the mining company, "and that is what the state can rent out to us." Residents who do not want to leave are squatters who violate the law from that moment on. Even though they were born and lived there all their lives. Those former residents are moved to neat new houses outside the area. With toilet, and bigger than the previous house, but without land to grow food. Some of them seem satisfied with that. Most do not. 'In Africa, land has sentimental value. You are no one without land, 'says one of them. "So you're destroying these people. They will not pass on anything to the next generation. " Episode 6. Copper fever For Africa, trade is better than aid, or so they say. On a journey to copper thieves and mine bosses, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind the slogan.

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.

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.

English/Nat Gold sales by the Bank of England came under fire today from South African miners, mine owners and the government. The government accused Britain of breaking an undertaking to consult it before going ahead with it's gold auction. All parties are demanding that further gold sales are stopped and proposed sales by the International Monetary Fund are cancelled. The auction of gold reserves has brought about a 20-year low in the gold price and potentially devastating effects on gold producing countries like South Africa. In Pretoria hundreds of gold miners protested against the expected closure of the 160-year-old E-R-P-M mine which will cost thousands of jobs. And the country's National Union of Mine workers has enlisted the help of sister organisations worldwide in a bid to prevent further gold sales by Britain and proposed sales by the International Monetary Fund. The union claims that "at least 800-thousand jobs" are under threat as a direct result of the gold sales --- the announcements of which sent markets reeling as the price of the yellow metal went into a tail-spin and plunged to record lows. It has already asked the International Chemical, Energy and Mining Federation, the American Mine workers Union and the American Federation of Labour to urge the International Monetary Fund to rethink its planned sale of 10 (m) million ounces of gold. An approach could also be made to the National Union of Miners in the United Kingdom and the British Trades' Union Congress to put pressure on Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair and his Labour government to abort further auctions of its gold reserves. SOUNDBITE: (English) "As our colonisers, they are inflicting more damage on us than help." SUPER CAPTION: Gwede Mantashe, NUM secretary general Tuesday's British auction of 25 tons of gold resulted in the metal's price sliding to a fresh 20 year low of 255-point-25 U-S dollars an ounce. The price of spot gold has fallen 12 percent in the last two months. South Africa is still the biggest producer of gold but it is also the most expensive with many of its mines in a "marginal" state even before the recent gold price collapse. The South African gold industry's role in the domestic economy has been in steady decline since the early 1980s when it accounted for well over half the country's exports. Today that figure is less than 20 percent. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The South African government find both incomprehensible and unacceptable the insensitivity of the British government and its monetary authorities towards the pleas of gold-producing countries, on the handling of the matter of gold sales. This behaviour, and the decisions of other industrialised countries and the IMF on the public handling of this matter is having the effect of defeating the very objectives that they profess to pursue." SUPER CAPTION: Joel Netshitenzhe, South African government spokesman The Chamber of Mines of South Africa condemned the method and timing of the gold sales and warned that it could cost the industry at least 12-thousand jobs. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We'd also be seeking to consolidate our position with the other Highly Indebted Poor Countries who are gold producers in order to make sure that we can speak with one voice on this matter." SUPER CAPTION: Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, South African Minister of Minerals and Energy Affairs It estimates that the combination of planned job losses and further vulnerable jobs will result in about 800-thousand people being exposed to the possibility of no subsistence income. This does not include those jobs at risk from companies which either supply or service the gold mining industry.

Players in the mining industry have declared their commitment to saving jobs. But it's unclear if the declaration signed today can stop a wave of retrenments that threatens to crash down. And union AMCU was once again conspicuous by their absence at the signing ceremony. Up to 19 thousand jobs are at stake - which will worsen the plight of mining communities and is something that South Africa, with an unemployment rate above 25 percent, can ill afford. The Department of Minerals, the Chamber of Mines and Labour representatives all agreed to ten points or interventions.
