Resolute - Syama Gold Project Overview
Syama is a long-life flagship project with robust economics. Located in the south of Mali, West Africa, the mine is approximately 30kms from the Côte d’Ivoire border and 300km southeast of the capital Bamako. Syama benefits from two fully operational parallel sulphide and oxide processing plants with site production capable of more than 250,000oz/pa.
“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.

Desperate men and children scour underwater mine-shafts in this terrifying report. Breathing through nothing more than a thin pipe connected to an air compressor, going 30 foot deep underwater for hours in search of gold is all in a day’s work for 16-year-old Gerald. "I'm afraid, if the earth collapses, I will get buried underneath" says the teenager. Surrounded by rock walls in the pitch black darkness of the water, the men chip away at walls for 3 hours. They find no gold. For many like Gerald school is a distant memory, and illegally diving for gold the only alternative to starvation. Hundreds of deaths by electrocution, drowning and even the possibility of Mercury poisoning have had little impact on compressor mining activities, which continue un-policed and unregulated. There appears little hope of change on the horizon. "If I could only give job opportunities - I will take them away from compressor mining. It is just that I have no alternative at this point" says Ricarte Padilla, Mayor of Jose Panganiban - Philippines' so-called "Gold Coast". As it is, the children and family men unearthing 60-80kg of gold per month see the lions share of wealth disappear into the Chinese black market.

Artisanal Gold Mining Mali
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE COMMENTING: The people mining this gold are local people who own the right to the gold through ancestral domain. In other words, they are not working for dirt under exploitative conditions. These are farmers who mine gold and fish between harvest and planting seasons. It is the only way some of them have to earn cash. They keep all the gold they find and sell it themselves at the fair market rate. They are not getting ripped off, and they are not being poisoned by mercury. Yes, there are mines in the hills near this location wher people are exploited and work under very dangerous conditions. I visited one of the bad mines and was not welcome, which is very strange anywhere in Mali. Anyway, these people are doing it voluntarily and receive full value for their take. This is: People panning for gold using traditional techniques on the Niger River, Mali, West Africa. They seem to get about one or two US dollars-worth in an afternoon when sold at local market (probably a lot more than that now). There are few other ways to earn cash there. Plus, this is during the hottest time of year and working in the river isn't so bad... Check out my book about traditional fishing and hunting in Mali: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H7XPCI8

Gold Mining and People's Dreams After Civil Wars in Liberia - Journey to Dreams Documentary
Liberia is one of the poorest countries in the world. It's economy mostly depends on foreign aids, directly on foreign investments and on exportation of natural resources such as iron ore, gold, rubber and timber. During the civil wars took place between 1989 and 2003 in Liberia, more than 250,000 people were killed. Actually I'm not talking about a very distant past. All these ended just 15 years ago. When the economy totally collapsed during the civil war, Liberia became the trade center for blood diamond extracted in Sierra Leone. Weapons used in the war were mostly financed in this way. In the forests of Liberia, tens of thousands of people are doing artisanal mining under very hard conditions. This is their only livelihood. Actually they just save the day at the risk of their lives. What connects them to life is their dreams.

Small-scale Gold Mining: Chinese Operations in Cameroon
Ein Film von Katja Becker und Jonathan Happ (2016) in Zusammenarbeit mit dem vom BMBF-geförderten Forschungsprojekt AFRASO –"Afrika's Asiatische Optionen" (http://www.afraso.org). Wissenschaftliches Konzept: Diderot Nguepjouo und Jürgen Runge Over the last decade, Cameroon’s artisanal and small-scale mining sector has gone through several mutations thanks to the new policy which has attracted various international investors from Asia, Africa, Europe, and America. As from 2012 on, the involvement of Chinese entrepreneurs has dramatically accelerated the pace of progress in the sector. Some of them switched from other economic activities they were already pursuing in the country whilst the others, mostly mining professionals, moved from the Ghanaian gold mining business to Cameroon. Chinese entrepreneurs have gradually become main players in the gold mining operations, recording successes, while other actors, e.g. Koreans, went bankrupt and in many cases have sold their business capital to Chinese without any competition. Through taking over those projects coupled with their greenfield mining initiatives, Chinese investors has gained the image of successful businessmen in the sector. As a result, their working style and techniques are gradually being adopted by almost all local and foreign investors. This is the context that spurred AFRASO researcher Diderot NGUEPJOUO together with the filmmaking crew UJUZI travel to Cameroon and shoot the 3rd AFRASO documentary. The film follows several active players in the major segments of the Artisanal and Small-scale Mining (ASM) in Cameroon: a Chinese investor; local entrepreneurs (member of Parliament, businessman, and middleman); workers, small operators in “Nguéré”, civil servants as well as the affected communities on their working sites. The film reveals that political elite and administrative authorities appear to favour the involvement of Chinese operators because they consider it beneficial to the State and local entrepreneurs (service providers, middlemen…), while traditional rulers and business people who did not partner with Chinese are less supportive of this presence. Furthermore, the positive impacts resulting from gold mining are reported to be enjoyed by Chinese investors and some local entrepreneurs while the communities are left with the impact of these activities such as land disturbance, water pollution, diseases... All in all, the movie tries to put forward the ongoing dynamics and contradictions that are taking place in the Cameroon's gold mining.

Eight miners found dead in South African gold mine, one still missing
Originally published on January 6, 2014 Sign up for a free trial of News Direct's animated news graphics at http://newsdirect.nma.com.tw/Reuters.aspx ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Rescuers recovered eight bodies on Thursday (February 6) after a fire and rock-fall at Harmony Gold's Doornkop mine, 30 km west of Johannesburg. One miner is still missing. The Johannesburg-based company said in an e-mailed statement said that the search continues for the ninth employee. The National Union of Mineworkers said in a statement that seismic activity on Tuesday evening dislodged rocks and damaged pipes and power cables, triggering a fire in the tunnel which broke out about 1,733m underground. Eight miners were rescued on Wednesday after they escaped into a "rescue bay" equipped with oxygen tanks and water and were later brought to the surface. "The situation is deeply regrettable," Susan Shabangu, the mineral resources minister, said in a statement on Thursday, as reported by AlJazeera. "We must ensure that we do all we can to get to the bottom of what caused this incident in order to prevent similar occurrences in future." The incident is the most serious in South Africa since July of 2009, when nine workers died, most of them from suffocation, in a rock-fall at a platinum mine. Mining is a vital part of South Africa's economy, yet South African gold mines are among the deepest and the most unstable in the world. The Doornkop mine is located in the West Rand, which is rich with gold. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next Media Animation's News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D animated news graphics that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Putting an End to Child Slavery in the Malian Mines
A Documentary Dedicated to Bringing Child Slavery Under the Public Spotlight → http://news.massmediaseo.com/putting-an-end-to-child-slavery-in-the-malian-mines/ → https://www.indiegogo.com/project/preview/c3e2506c → https://www.facebook.com/m...miners Award winning Director of the hit film Gold of Dangers has announced a new project. Moctar Menta, a young photographer, designer and filmmaker with a Masters Degree in “Multimedia” from the Conservatory of Art and Multimedia Balla Fasseke Kouyate of Bamako; is making a film to help save the young minors in Africa. The documentary depicts the horrors of children’s artisanal gold mining in Mali with all of its associated dangers, including a variety of anatomical strains abnormal for young children to procure. With the help of Lesky Draba, as photo director and François Tembely as his mining advisor. This all-star team is getting together to create a new documentary called “Bling – The Minor Miners” currently on Indiegogo. The film, aims to explore the high demand for gold, the export to Western and Middle Eastern countries, and the effect it has had on child labor and exploitation as reported by Human Rights Watch. The reason for this documentary is simple: these children’s lives are at stake. In order to create this documentary Menta needs two things: basic funding for crew, staff and equipment. And of course, the connections required to make this film a reality. He needs everyone to come out and support this cause. Sign up for an interview if you have something to offer the film or help make a connection that will enrich this documentary. And for those who cannot help with either, he knows just how far a Facebook “Like” or “Share” can travel. With support, these children may be able to go on and live a normal life. But it can’t be done without the help and collaboration of the international community. Be a part of the solution and bring these children back into a safe environment. Partner with us today by becoming a sponsor, consider a donation, or share with us on Facebook. The campaign is seeking to raise $25,000 to create the documentary “Bling – The Minor Miners”.

We Call Them Intruders: A Documentary about Canadian Mining in Africa
How well do you know your money? Two Vancouver-based filmmakers trace their investments to Canadian mines in Eastern and Southern Africa. If you live and work in Canada, chances are you’re connected to Canadian mining companies whether you know it or not through your savings, taxes, Canada Pension Plan contributions, RRSPs and other investments. "We Call Them Intruders" (previously titled "Plenty's Paradox") is a documentary that travels from Canada to Africa and back again to unearth the stories behind some of the continent’s largest Canadian-owned mining projects. The film brings viewers on a journey, taking a hard look at why communities, governments and corporations are so often pitted against each other in an explosive battle over extracting the earth’s riches.
