South Africa's Illegal Gold Mines
 
10:37
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.

Africa's mining industry outlook 2017
 
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.

West African Truckers (Documentary)
 
19:18
West African truck drivers spend days, weeks, and sometimes months dealing with corrupt border officials and illegal checkpoints on harrowing delivery trips that should take just a few hours. -- The truck driver holds a mythic stature in American music, from the hayseed hagiographies of Slim Jacobs and Bobby Sykes to the liner notes of Big Black's Songs About Fucking. There aren't as many country songs about African truckers, but they are no less the virile champions of industry and gluteal fortitude as their US counterparts. On their backs rest the burden of an entire continent's economic development and through their bloodstreams runs a hell of a lot of the continent's HIV. Trade in West Africa is perennially fucked, partially because the colonial powers of the 19th and early 20th centuries chopped the place up into a pizza pie of nonsensical borders, but also because most post-colonial governments in the area were so unabashedly corrupt we had to coin the term "kleptocracy" to describe them. Driving a semi full of margarine a US state's length to its delivery point often involves passing through 3-4 separate countries and navigating the byzantine customs and immigration processes at each port of entry. Then there are the internal checkpoints manned by local police and customs agents on the lookout for smugglers, or non-smugglers who can be intimidated into coughing up a bribe. Then there's just fuckers who'll pull you over and straight-up rob you. Infrastructure ain't always so hot here, either. All of which turns shipments which would take a few hours in Europe or America into grueling, day-cum-week-cum-monthlong affairs punctuated by long and unpredictable periods of complete standstill. Which, in addition to wasting fuel and driving up the cost of goods with every unplanned stop, also fuels the sort of boredom that can only be fought by dumping money into the less savory sectors of the economy. Namely booze sales and roadside prostitution. Which is where the AIDS come in. Intrigued by the African long-haul trucker's dual reputation as the foundational building block of West Africa's would-be robust economy and lotharious Johnny AIDS-leseed, we hitched a ride with a trailer full of soap to see just how hard it is to get from point-A to point-basically-A-and-a-half.

The Central African Republic is one of the poorest countries in the world, but it is also rich in natural resources. One of the official mining sectors has collapsed amid the country’s ongoing conflict, and now both sides are benefitting from the illicit trade of gold and diamonds. Clashes over control of the many mines have also created religious tension in places where there previously had been none.

SOUTH AFRICA: DIAMOND MINING EXPERTS CONFERENCE
 
02:30
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."

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 AFRICA: DIAMOND TRADE
 
03:53
E English/Nat Diamonds used to be a girl's best friend. However today, with Western diamond-buying nations trying to stop the entry of so-called "blood" or "dirty diamonds" onto the market, the sparkling gems have become a political minefield. Civil wars in countries like Angola and Sierra Leone are believed to be funded largely by revenue from diamonds. Now experts from around the world, including war-torn Sierra Leone are to meet in South Africa on Tuesday (September 19) to thrash out ways of solving the thorny problems connected with the trade in diamonds It is the trade in these allegedly illicit diamonds that American lawmakers and the European Union amongst others are trying to curb. Now experts from around the world, including war-torn Sierra Leone are scheduled to meet in South Africa this week to thrash out ways of solving the thorny problems connected with the trade in diamonds It is estimated that about six percent of the world's diamonds are in the hands of Angola's rebel Unita movement. This figure helped a recent European Union decision to impose new diamond-related sanctions on the rebel group. And the United Nations' ban on the import of diamonds from Sierra Leone is gathering support. Smugglers are believed to be moving vast amounts of diamonds from countries like Angola and Sierra Leone, through neighbouring states and on to European diamond centres like Antwerp in Belgium where 85 percent of the world's rough diamonds are traded. The World Diamond Congress has imposed a package of measures to track diamonds from the mines to the jewellers stores. In the United States a group of lawmakers are presently trying to get Congress to pass a law requiring proof of origin of all diamonds sold on world markets. One suggestion is that diamonds be sold in sealed containers with a certificate of origin. At it's meeting in July, the World Diamond Congress supported a system of certification. Some argue that such controls could inflict significant economic damage on diamond-producing countries such as South Africa. De Beers diamond company which controls more than half of the world's diamonds, claims it is virtually impossible to tell where a diamond is originated. Johannesburg diamond merchant Max Barker agrees. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The question is, can you tell the source of rough stones and you can't. Not, not as a rule you can't. You can't. As I say you might have a suspicion but you can't. It's not like a motor car or a wrist watch or something which, it's you know ... there are ways and means of finding out the origin, with a rough diamond, it's very difficult." SUPERCAPTION: Max Barker, Managing Director, Diamond Supply Corporation Setting up and enforcing a certification system for the $6-billion-a-year industry would be at best difficult to control. SOUNDBITE: (English) "In one month there is probably millions of stones being sold worldwide or probably hundreds of millions traded worldwide every month. I mean, how? First of all you don't know the source of the stone and secondly if you did how are you going to control it?" SUPERCAPTION: Max Barker, Managing Director, Diamond Supply Corporation But consumers are starting to ask where their diamonds come from. Gone are the days when the simple act of buying an engagement ring was just an expensive, but romantic gesture. Nowadays pictures of victims of wars in African countries awash with minerals are starting to raise questions. Will the simple purchase of a diamond help result in further massacres? Consumers in the United States are regularly asking whether their gems are "conflict-free".

In a single gold mine in South Africa, an expected $2.2 billion worth of gold can still be extracted from just one dump site's waste material. Using water cannons and chemical treatements, a single mine can hope to extract about 3 grams in every tonne. It may not sound like much but if there is 140 million tonnes of waste lying around - the numbers start adding up. High prices means all the effort that goes into sourcing the precious metal may well be worth it.

South African police gun down striking miners
 
01:59
WARNING: DISTURBING FOOTAGE At least 30 people have been killed after police opened fire on striking platinum miners at the Marikana mine north west of Johannesburg, one of the bloodiest police operations since apartheid ended in South Africa. Police were sent to intervene after thousands of miners, seen here armed with clubs and machetes, gathered to protest outside the Lonmin-owned platinum mine. The reasons why police opened fire on the strikers remains unclear, but eyewitness reports suggest the shooting took place after a group of demonstrators rushed at a line of police officers. According to a journalist at the scene, officers had first used water cannons, tear gas and stun grenades in an attempt to disperse the crowd. The shootings are the climax to several days of violent protests. 10 people had already been killed in other clashes in the mining town. The Mine, owned by the world's third largest platinum producer Lonmin, has been at the centre of a violent pay dispute after workers demanded a pay increase to 12,500 rand, or £976 a month. The London based company had earlier warned striking miners that they would lose their jobs if they did not return to work.

China bets big on Guinea's bauxite - 08 Nov 09
 
02:38
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe China is proving an important trade partner for the west African nation of Guinea. While Guinea's military rulers are facing sanctions from the African Union and others in the international community, China's recently committed to a $7bn mining and oil exploration deal. Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege, reporting from the mining town of Sangaredi, says Chinese investment in bauxite mining - which accounts for 95 per cent of Guinea's total economy - has come to the aid of an industry threatened by EU sanctions. The sanctions include bans on travel and the freezing of assets held outside Guinea by the military leaders, who seized power in a coup after the death of Lansana Conte, the president, last December. They were imposed after troops opened fire on September 28 at a rally in a stadium, in the capital, Conakry, where protesters were urging Moussa Dadis Camara, the country's military leader, not to stand in presidential elections planned for January.

Illegal Chinese Gold Mining in Ghana
 
02:18
The Chinese regime is Africa's largest trade partner and miners in countries such as Ghana increasingly rely on Chinese equipment and capital. But there are concerns that Chinese entrepreneurs are involved in illegal mining activities beyond the view of Ghana's regulatory regime, and locals say their share of the profits is shrinking. Foreign gold seekers are nothing new in Ghana, but a new wave of prospectors are now making their presence felt, this time from China. Ghana's laws say foreign companies are only allowed to work on large, open-pit operations. But campaigners say Chinese entrepreneurs are also illegally controlling small-scale operations behind the scenes, typically through a local intermediary. Ghana is Africa's second largest gold exporter. More than 100,000 Ghanaians work in these small, dark mine shafts. Together they produce about 20 percent of the country's gold. The Chinese regime is Africa's largest trade partner with two-way volume reaching $100-billion U.S. dollars in 2010. Some welcome the Chinese because they bring necessary capital and equipment. But some workers in Ghana's pits accuse Chinese entrepreneurs of increasing their share of local profits. [Joseph Ben, Former Illegal Miner]: "The Chinese people bring their equipment which makes the work easy for you and they know the work too, but when you are sick they don't pay your hospital bills you have to use your own money." Mr. Ben says he used to work in a Chinese run mine where he was paid 80 Ghana cedi, or about $50 U.S. dollars, per month. Now he's paid twice as much in a mine owned by Ghanaians. Last month the police arrested 25 Chinese miners said to be working illegally around the village of Wasa. The association of communities affected by mining says Chinese companies have built networks of local people, including miners, local chiefs and security agents, to give them cover for illegal mining.
