Mining companies digging into the benefits of mechanised mining
In many developed and developing countries mining has been a source of high employment. The mining sector has relied on relatively cheap labour to get commodities out of the ground. But that's started to change and many companies see the benefit of mechanization. It's one of the themes at the Mining Indaba taking place in Cape Town this week.

Mining communities struggling as industry giants meet in S Africa
Mining is big business in Africa, but few people benefit from the riches it produces. At the continent's largest mining conference in Cape Town, the focus is on rebuilding confidence after a few tough years due to falling commodity prices. But there are also questions about ownership and control of the mines and the wealth they generate.

Economic Benefits & Environmental Impacts of Offshore Phosphate Mining in Namibia
by: Alna Dall One Exclusive Phosphorous is the eleventh most common element in the world. It helps in the creation of our DNA, it is needed for your body to form bones and teeth. It is also an essential part of cell growth in plants. It can be found everywhere in products like carbonated drinks, detergents but more importantly, fertilizers. Although it occurs naturally in substances such as bone, ash, urine and animal manure, in order to keep up with the global demand for phosphorous, it has been mined for centuries from phosphate rock - a natural and non-renewable resource. There a few sites along the Namibian coast where large quantities of phosphate rock have been detected on the seabed floor...but mines have been unable to start dredging, due to a 18 month moratorium from Government. Stakeholders from the fishing industry demanded extensive research to be done on the impact such mining would have on not only the environment, but the fishing industry as well. We speak to Hans Huckstedt from LL Namibia Phosphates about the outcomes of these studies, the economic benefits and perceived pitfalls of phosphate mining, as well as THEIR role in a form of mining that has never been attempted before.

Nationalisation Debate: South Africa's Mineral Resources Equivalent to One Million Rand per Citizen
Talking about the nationalisation debate in South Africa in relation to the mining sector, black economic empowerment (BEE) expert Duma Gqubule explains that the value of untapped mineral resources in South Africa's is US$4.7 trillion. Put differently, the value of these mineral resources is worth one million Rand per South African citizen. Gqubule argues that the mistake our country made in relation to BEE was to set a target of 25% for black people. By definition, a black empowerment transaction will only benefit a few black people. There has to be more that you take from this industry for the country as a whole, he contends. Gqubule is interviewed by Fazila Farouk of the South African Civil Society Information Service.

The South African Vanadium Mine Poisoning its Workers (2002)

Hidden Valley (documentary)
A people speak out for their river, and for their future. The Hidden Valley gold and silver mine in the Morobe Province is affecting communities living along the Watut River, a long and fast-flowing river in the lush mountains of Papua New Guinea. In this evocative and beautifully shot short documentary we hear how indigenous models of development are clashing with those imposed by mining companies and government when they are not listening to local landowners. “Is this development for the benefit of local people or for the shareholders in Australia and South Africa?” – Howard Sindana in Hidden Valley. We hear from a diverse range of local community representatives, community workers and landowners including Reuben Mete from the Union of Watut River Communities and from Dr. Gavin Mudd, an environmental engineer, as they describe the impacts of this jointly Australian - South African owned mine as well as the way forward to a more sustainable future. Premiered at on 5th September 2013 at the Environmental Film Festival Melbourne, Australia.

Silicosis - the Legacy of South African  gold mining
To take action visit: http://www.actsa.org/page-1520-Justice%20for%20South%20African%20Gold%20Miners:%20Take%20action.html For more information visit: http://www.leighday.co.uk/International-and-group-claims/Gold-mining-silicosis-(1)/ . __________________________________________ For most of the 20th century until 1998, Anglo American South Africa was the largest gold mining house, employing hundreds of thousands of miners. These are a few of those men. Silicosis is a lung disease, known for over 100 years to be caused by dust exposure in gold mines. If a claimant dies before a certain point in South African proceedings, the family cannot claim pain and suffering compensation.  Delays in the justice system deprive ex-miners and their widows of vast sums of money. The effect of the lack of medical facilities and ongoing delays is to benefit the industry financially. Meanwhile, ex-miners die uncompensated and their widows are left destitute. Anglo American South Africa has net assets of US15 billion. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of London-headquartered mining giant, Anglo American plc. Justice delayed is justice denied.

English/Nat Mining experts from around the world have begun meeting in Pretoria for a conference which they hope will result in African governments agreeing to legislate against trade in "blood diamonds" which benefits wars and rebel groups in Africa. The three-day conference, is the last in a series of meetings held throughout the international diamond world. It coincides with an increase in a new world conscience in the diamond trade. The United Nations has already placed a ban on diamonds originating from war-torn Sierra Leone which find their way onto the world market through other countries. That country was represented by its Deputy Director of Mines Usman Boie Kamara who announced his country would soon implement its own measures against "conflict diamonds". SOUNDBITE: (English) "Within the next week or so we hope to have our own certification regime in place and we would then apply to the UN to lift the sanctions on the exportation of diamonds using this certification regime which we would then have in place." SUPERCAPTION: Deputy Director of Mines in Sierra Leone, Usman Boie Kamara SOUNDBITE: (English): "I am extremely confident that it will be achieved because we have all the role players in the diamond industry worldwide as well as all the governments of Africa and Southern Africa getting together to combat it with a common cause and that is to promote the use of diamonds for the prosperity and benefit of all the peoples of Africa."

Sierra Leone Pastor Finds 706 Carat Diamond Which Could Be 10th Largest Ever
A Christian pastor working in a Sierra Leone mine has found a 706-carat diamond, which could be the tenth largest ever found. The precious stone was found by Emmanuel Momoh, who was working in the Kono region, in the east of the country. It will be sold in Sierra Leone in a 'transparent' bidding process to benefit the country, according to a government statement. It read: 'A 706-carat diamond was presented to President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma yesterday evening. 'Receiving the diamond President Koroma thanked the chief and his people for not smuggling the diamond out of the country.' Diamond expert Paul Zimnisky said it could be 'between the 10th and 15th largest gem-diamonds ever recovered' and such a find is very rare in a small mine. He said: 'Most recent exceptional diamond discoveries have been made by large commercial miners that mine very large volumes of kimberlite ore and process it with advanced equipment. 'Artisanal mining tends to produce smaller, lower quality diamonds because the diamonds suffer breakage and erosion.' Zimnisky said the stone would likely be sold outside Sierra Leone, despite the government's assertion, for better access to buyers. Without a professional assessment of the diamond's potential flaws and colouring it is impossible to value the stone. However, a polished stone cut from the Jonker, which is the 10th largest gem-diamond ever recovered until now at 726 carats, will go on sale in Hong Kong in May. A single 25-carat portion is likely to sell for $2.2 million to $3.6 million (£1.78 million to £2.75 million), or $88,000 to $144,000 for a single carat, Zimnisky said. A 1,111-carat diamond was discovered at a mine in Botswana in 2015, the biggest find for more than a century. That gem is second in size only to the Cullinan diamond which was unearthed in South Africa in 1905, at 3,106 carats uncut, according to the Cape Town Diamond Museum. The Cullinan was cut into several gems, including two set into the sceptre and crown of the British Crown Jewels. Historically, Sierra Leone has had a controversial role in the diamond industry. The sale of 'blood diamonds' helped finance civil wars across Africa in the 1990s and often funded military dictatorships on a continent that the London Diamond Bourse estimates provides 65 percent of the world's diamonds. Rebels allowed traders to exploit diamond mines and ship the gems abroad via Liberia. In one of the most notorious cases, former Liberian warlord Charles Taylor was found guilty of supporting the rebels in exchange for diamonds mined by slave labour. The district where the 706-carat diamond was discovered is where US-Belgian businessman Michel Desaedeleer, accused of enslavement and diamond trafficking during Sierra Leone's civil war, is alleged to have committed his crimes.

South Africa's Toxic Mine Dumps (2009)
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?

Congo, My Precious. The Curse of the coltan mines in Congo
Watch more https://rtd.rt.com/tags/illegal-mining/ The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is one of the world’s most resource-rich countries. A wide range of rare minerals can be found here in abundance, all commanding high prices in world commodity markets. Diamonds for jewellery, tantalum, tungsten and gold for electronics; uranium used in power generation and weaponry and many others. Congo has copious deposits of raw materials that are in high demand internationally but remains one of the poorest countries in the world. From colonisation, with the horrors of slavery and other atrocities, to a turbulent and equally brutal present in which militant groups control the mines, Congo’s richness in natural resources has brought nothing but misery. Referred to as “conflict minerals”, these riches leave only a trail of death, destruction and poverty. Under Belgian rule, Congolese labourers were often required to meet quotas when mining different minerals. Failure could mean punishment by having a hand cut off with a machete. The country gained independence in 1960, but that didn’t put a stop to slave and child labour or to crimes being committed to extract and exploit the minerals. Warring militant fractions from inside the country and beyond seized control of mines for their own benefit while terrorising local populations. For our translator, Bernard Kalume Buleri, his country’s history of turmoil is very personal; like most Congolese people, he and his family fell victim to the unending mineral based power struggle. Born in the year of his country’s independence, he has lived through war and seen his homeland torn apart by violent looting and greed. His story is a damning testament, illustrating how nature’s bounty, instead of being a blessing, becomes a deadly curse.

Bitcoin adoption in South Africa
South Africa is known as the Rainbow Nation, 11 official languages and many different cultures. A magnificent country and birthplace of Nelson Mandela, anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. South Africa is the largest economy in Africa having just leapfrogged Nigeria who have just moved into recession. The country is rich in natural resources and is a leading producer of platinum, gold, chromium and iron. From 2002 to 2008, South Africa grew at an average of 4.5 percent year-on-year, its fastest expansion since the establishment of democracy in 1994. In recent years, successive governments have failed to address structural problems such as the widening gap between rich and poor, low-skilled labour force, high unemployment rate, deteriorating infrastructure, high corruption and crime rates. Since the recession in 2008, South Africa growth has been sluggish and below African average. The South African economy advanced an annualized 3.3 percent on quarter in the three months to June of 2016. Inflation is above targets set by the Reserve Bank and confidence is low. Political and financial turmoil is rocking South Africa and Finance Minister Pravin Gordham, was issued a summons on fraud charges - 11 Oct 2016 – Rand plunge 3% within minutes of the breaking news. Governing Party ANC loses Metro’s to opposition DA in recent elections; Unrest at Universities and Junk status in December looming which could spell hard times for South Africans. With regards to the digital economy there is a growing cryptocurrency market and active Bitcoin trading. Main stream media reporting by Carte Blanche, News24, Finance24 plus others regularly. Active networking groups offering Network marketing contracts and gifting schemes. Bitcoin mining, besides the difficulty level, electricity is expensive however, small scale mining evident - mostly mining alt coins to sell in exchange for bitcoin. Internet user base in excess of 34% - over 60% of internet traffic generated on the African continent originates from SA. Most advanced telecommunications infrastructure in Africa, which has contributed to the largest 3G and 4G coverage (94% and 34% respectively). Cellphone and Data costs remain high. High profile South Africans on the move - Vinny Lingham – recently launched Civic which has a huge task in combating identity fraud in the USA. Exciting business indeed as identity theft is extremely high world wide. Llew Claasen was appointed executive director of the Bitcoin Foundation in 2016. Upcoming event - Blockchain Conference 1 – 3 March 2017 - Johannesburg. Book your ticket here http://blockchainafrica.co/ There are a few established exchanges and over the counter platforms in operation - Local Bitcoins which is an OTC Platform connecting Buyers and sellers and in February and March of 2016 – over R17 Million rand weekly was traded on the platform (Roughly 18% of all trading volume on Localbitcoins WORLDWIDE). There are very active independent traders in South Africa with unaccounted for volume distributed peer to peer without going through a platform or exchange. Altcointrader is also a buying and selling exchange dealing in alternative coins as well as bitcoin. BitX is a Singapore based global platform with offices in Cape Town and founded in 2013 - they also have offices in other African countries. So what are our assumptions - South Africans are open and eager to learn more about Bitcoin and the world’s new digital economy. It is incumbent on every Bitcoin Believer to spread the word on the power of bitcoin. Bitcoin education and guidance is needed to help eradicate poverty in South Africa. We suggest South Africans diversity their Investment portfolio with Bitcoin to benefit from the devaluation of the Rand and increase in value of Bitcoin. If a person had purchased bitcoin in June 2015 and just held on to their bitcoin, it would have grown in value by 322% by June 2016! No other currency or asset is out performing Bitcoin.

Mammoth sums of money stolen from the poorest of the poor

Corruption Watch examined the history and the change in the mining royalties system and IF poverty-stricken mining communities benefit from this system. The report revealed that the plunder of mining royalties may be the most appalling tale of corruption and maladministration in the country which involves mammoth sums of money stolen from the poorest of the poor. Joining us is David Lewis, the Executive Director of Corruption Watch. For more news, visit: sabcnews.com

Africa is replete with stories of the ‘resource curse’; where the activities of extractive corporations have led to the worst forms of environmental degradation, human rights violations and land dispossession. From the Niger Delta to Venda in South Africa, these corporations come with the promise of development by providing jobs and new infrastructure. These promises, however, remain largely unfulfilled and many communities continue to face increased poverty through loss of their own livelihoods, destruction of whole ecological systems and the growth of militarization, even as a small local elite benefits from the extraction. ‘The Mining Curse’ – is a film that explores the intersections of the externalization of the costs of extraction to various African communities, more so on their sacred natural sites. The film explores the local struggles of these communities as they resist mining operations on their lands, through the voices of the custodians of these sites. This film builds on the report released last year by ABN, ‘Recognising Sacred Natural Sites and Territories in Kenya’, which is an analysis of how the Kenyan Constitution, National and International Laws can support the recognition of these sites as well as community governance systems.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer Demo & Review || WOC Friendly? || South African Beauty Youtuber
♡♡♡ OPEN ME!!! ♡♡♡ Hello Slay Squad♡ I hope you lovelies are doing well. Who else is excited for another short week? So, we are starting this Benefit review week with the benefit hoola bronzer. For reference, I am NC44.5 in MAC foundation. MY FINAL THOUGHTS: I have to admit that I am very used to seeing myself with a warm bronzer and contour shade so I was a bit taken aback when I used such a cool shade on my skin. This is my first impressions of the product but I have been using it for about a week now and I really like it. It really chisels the face and I have been using it without blush and just a little highlight. So my final thoughts is that is it bomb for nose and face contour. If you’re above the shade NC45, it might not work for you. It takes some getting used to if you’re all about that warm toned life like me. LOL. And lastly, this bronzer is super buildable. You can chisel your face or opt for a more bronzed and natural look. If that makes any sense. Overall, I am super impressed even more so because I can actually use it on my face and not just my nose contour. I also think that my cheek shape makes it look more cool and I’ve noticed it looks a little warm on the other parts of my face. You can purchase benefit products online at https://www.redsquare.co.za/brand/benefit.html or benefit counters at Redsquare and Edgars stores. I purchased mine from Eastgate Mall Redsquare. Follow me on my social media: Instagram: @sanesh_makeup Facebook page: @saneshmakeup Twitter: @Saneshnie_Yo Snapchat: @saneshmakeup PR/Business enquiries/Makeup Bookings : [email protected] Thank you so much for watching ♥♥♥♥♥ Lots of Love Sanesh ABOUT ME: Why did I start Youtube??? From a young age, I suffered with severe acne which caused me to be very self-conscious and have almost no self-confidence at all. I started my channel so that people could see that no one is perfect. We all have flaws and we are all our own worst critics. However, we should be comfortable in our own skin, I mean we're only in this body for the rest of our lives. But who says we can't SLAY that cut crease while accepting ourselves the way God intended. DISCLAIMER: This product was bought with my own money. All opinions are my own based on my experience with the product. I will always remain 110% honest and truthful to my subscribers.

These benches are usually on four meter to sixty meter intervals, depending on the size of the machinery that is being used. Many quarries do not use benches, as they are usually shallow. The largest underground mine:Kiirunavaara Mine in Kiruna, Sweden, 450 kilometers of roads, 40 million tonnes of ore produced yearly, depth 1,270 meters, is also one of the most modern underground mines. The deepest borehole in the world is Kola Superdeep Borehole at 12,262 meters. This, however, is not a matter of mining but rather related to scientific drilling. This move follows a switch to index-based quarterly pricing by the world's three largest iron ore miners - Vale, Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton - in early , breaking a 40-year tradition of benchmark annual pricing.[9] The oldest known mine on archaeological record is the "Lion Cave" in Swaziland, which radiocarbon dating shows to be about 43,000 years old. At this site paleolithic humans mined hematite to make the red pigment ochre.[2][3] Mines of a similar age in Hungary are believed to be sites where Neanderthals may have mined flint for weapons and tools.[citation needed] In the early colonial history of the Americas, "native gold and silver was quickly expropriated and sent back to Spain in fleets of gold- and silver-laden galleons"[19] mostly from mines in Central and South America. Turquoise dated at 700 A.D. was mined in pre-Columbian America; in the Cerillos Mining District in New Mexico, estimates are that "about 15,000 tons of rock had been removed from Mt Chalchihuitl using stone tools before ."[20][21]

Credit Facility to Boost Exporters in Progressing Mining Projects
In addition to facilitating export trade and enabling exporters to access mining project opportunities across Africa, the Export Credit Insurance Corporation (ECIC) of South Africa will this year focus on increasing awareness of its latest offering – a multicurrency guarantee facility to assist exporters in securing credit solutions. This service offering will be highlighted at this year’s Investing in African Mining Indaba, which will take place from February 8 to 11 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. “The ECIC has entered into a partnership with financial institution FirstRand Bank, the parent company of Rand Merchant Bank, to create a 50:50 risk-sharing arrangement and multicurrency guarantee facility for exporters,” says ECIC COO Mandisi Nkuhlu, who will also be the corporation’s official speaker at the Indaba’s thought leadership programme. “While the banking sector has stronger client relations with exporters, key challenges lie in most active exporters exceeding their credit limits.” Therefore, the multicurrency guarantee facility, which was launched in November 2015 to provide additional financing solutions, will include the credit facility for performance and retention bonds. The ECIC and FirstRand Bank partnership will also be facilitated through an umbrella risk participation agreement. The two entities have agreed to a three-year facility of about $200-million, which could be extended. This facility aims to support credit exporters, such as mining companies or contractors, that participate in the agreement. These participants will be able to increase their limits, thereby increasing their capacity to raise bonds, while creating additional opportunity to simultaneously compete for more projects. “This is in line with the ECIC’s mandate to facilitate export trade,” Nkuhlu stresses, suggesting that the availability of an additional debt facility will provide more direct benefit for exporters. “Moreover, by increasing the competitiveness of South African exporters, they are expected to compete more effectively on an international stage. He notes that several international financial institutions have retracted from the project finance market, with projects currently relying on future cash flows. These types of institutions are more comfortable to lend with support from a corporate finance basis or from a sovereign basis, that is, when a country’s finance minister supports a project, he says. Nkuhlu adds, however, that South African financial institutions have a strong record in supporting project finance in the mining sector in Africa, having experienced the downturn and upswing of the commodities cycles. “The South African financial services sector, therefore, comprises sufficient intellectual capital to contend with any industry challenges and to improve credit facility agreements when required,” he posits. While this insurance service offering can be regarded as a prototype, the ECIC aims to roll out a more significant offering to accommodate and benefit more exporters and key industry players in future. This service offering is not restricted to the mining sector and will also be available to the construction, energy, agribusiness and manufacturing sectors, says Nkuhlu.

Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History
Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine a pit, and the above-ground structures the pit head. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States "colliery" has been used to describe a coal mine operation but nowadays the word is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunnelling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts, to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, hydraulic jacks and shearers. Small-scale mining of surface deposits dates back thousands of years. For example, in Roman Britain, the Romans were exploiting most of the major coalfields by the late 2nd century AD. Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining

Pilot trials of this system were run in the Eastern Cape province late last year. The Gauteng Department of Education was then approached with a new way of providing solar electricity to off-grid schools. CCTV's Angelo Coppola, tells us how it worked out.
