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.

A Dirty Deal - German Investments in  South Africa´s Coal Industry

In Southafrica, people living next to cole mines or coal-fired power stations lose their land, their health and the access to water. As suppliers of components for the giant power stations Kusile and Medupi, German companies like SIEMENS, Bilfinger Berger or Rheinmetall Defense Electronics bear a responsibility for those problems in the coal sector of South Africa.

Mining Analyst Peter Major on the future of mining industry in SA

Africa's biggest gold miner, AngloGold Ashanti, is planning to retrench eight-thousand-500 mine workers as part of its restructuring of its South African business. The world's third largest gold miner has started talks with unions to cut its workforce by a third as some gold mines have reached the end of their economic lives. The mining industry has been bleeding jobs since 2012. According to Stats SA, almost 50,000 jobs were lost between 2012 to 2015, mostly in the gold and platinum sectors.

GOLD INDUSTRY IN SOUTH AFRICA & HISTORY OF GOLD MINING 42994
 
13:15
“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.

South African gold mines choke the poor
 
04:22
Mining has a long history in South Africa, beginning with diamonds, and then followed by gold from the 1870s onwards. The gold mining sector has since expanded into the largest in the world, but declining reserves have led to the closure of hundreds of mines around South Africa’s largest city, Johannesburg. The legacy includes polluted ponds and huge piles of waste called ‘tailings’. This audio slideshow visits a site where these tailings sit beside some of the country’s poorest communities, contaminating both their air and water supplies. Wind blows dust far and wide from these mineral mountains and rainfall creates acid water, which leaches into surrounding streams and wetlands, killing wildlife and contaminating water supplies. Local authorities have installed water filtration plants in the area to reduce the health risks for nearby residents. But the problem persists. http://www.scidev.net/global/water/multimedia/south-african-gold-mines-poor.html

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.

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.

Exposing The Inhumane Conditions Of Burkina Faso's Gold Mines

Gold Dust: Under Blaise Compaore's leadership, Burkina Faso's unregulated gold rush has had a devastating effect on mining conditions. This report digs deep into the industry, exposing the corruption beneath Compaore's ruling. Millions of people - including children as young as fourteen - mine in an unregulated industry for a few golden grams of hope. Marcel toils underground to support his family - but without the glittering rewards promised. “We all have hope, we hope to earn” he says, but "they rob us here...They treat the miner like an animal." 17-year old Soumaele has been mining for two years. His thin body can go to even deeper than the older men, to places where the air is impossible to breathe and the tunnels are likely to collapse. Gold promises a great deal, but in an anarchic industry, teacher Soungalo Hema fears for the future of children like Soumaele: "You try and save them", she says, "but a lot of the time it’s in vain. I ask myself 'what will happen to all of us?'"

Coal Mines
 
43:44
The goal of coal mining is to obtain 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 States, United Kingdom, and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunneling, 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, jacks and shearers. - H&T

SAfrican miners with lung disease on class action
 
03:08
(20 May 2016) South African mineworkers suffering from silicosis, a lung disease caused by inhaling silica dust are taking some of the world's biggest gold mining companies to court in what their lawyer says is the largest class action suit in the country's history. Thousands of miners are claimants and many more are expected to join the class action law suit. Dr Rhett Khan, who works in the mining town of Welkom in the Free State, worked for 10 years as a medical doctor for miners at Harmony gold mines. He has seen thousands of mine workers suffering from tuberculosis, many of whom died as a result of the illness, and says most of these cases were brought on by silicosis in their lungs as a result of working in the mines. Thabang Moorosi, a former driller in South Africa's gold mines, is one of his patients. Moorosi takes a minute to catch his breath after struggling onto a hospital bed for his monthly lung check. The 60-year-old, a long-distance runner in his youth, was diagnosed in 2005 with silicosis after years of inhaling silica dust at rock faces far below ground. Last week, a South African judge said gold miners who got lung diseases while working underground, as well as families of miners who died of such diseases, can launch a class action suit against those companies. Some companies said they want to reach a settlement to avoid litigation that could last many years. Richard Spoor, the lawyer who initiated the lawsuit, said 35 gold mining companies were defendants. The mines being sued for damages include Anglo American, AngloGold Ashanti, Harmony Gold and Goldfields. Preventing silicosis is relatively simple but costly as it involves ventilating a mine with vast quantities of refrigerated air, Spoor said. During apartheid, South Africa's system of white minority rule which ended in 1994, many young black men worked in the mines until they were sick or dead because there were few protections, he said.

Eleanor Bell Fox, Journalist; Recorded on June 27, 2016 More information about Eleanor's project, Fatal Extraction: Australian Mining in Africa, can be found here: http://pulitzercenter.org/project/fatal-extraction-australian-mining-in-africa The full multimedia presentation can be found here: https://projects.icij.org/fatalextraction/ 2016 Summer Teacher Institute - Global Issues in Local Contexts: Turning International Journalism into Teachable Lessons Conflict and international migration. Consumption and waste. Environmental degradation and conservation. No matter where we live, these issues affect our lives. But how do these issues manifest differently around the world? How do global issues connect to local contexts? How are contemporary challenges handled in different places around the world? And how can we present these important topics to students in ways that will both engage them and connect them to the larger world? This two-day professional development workshop brought together award-winning journalists supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and digital educational resources created by Pulitzer Center and UChicago to address the incorporation of current global issues in the classroom. The Institute is presented by the University of Chicago Center for East Asian Studies, Center for East European and Russian/Eurasian Studies, Center for Latin American Studies, Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Neighborhood Schools Program, Oriental Institute, and UChicago Engages, in partnership with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. It is made possible through generous support from the Title VI National Resource Center grants from the US Department of Education.
