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.

    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 pro...

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.

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. The President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, has said the was 'shocked and dismayed at this senseless violence'. Helen Zille, leader of opposition party the Democratic Alliance, has called for an independent investigation into the shootings. Written by Alfred Joyner

Formerly the Western Deep Levels South Shaft, or Shaft No 1, Mponeng is the most recently sunk of the three former Western Deep Levels mines. Sinking of Mponeng shafts began in 1981, and the main shaft was completed in 1986, with the subshaft completed in 1993. Currently all production is sourced from the VCR (Ventersdorp Contact Reef). The mine has been expanded through many deepening projects with the latest one being the extension from 109 to 120 levels. Work is currently in progress to extract the ore from the Carbon Leader Reef (CLR) below it. The project will facilitate the development of many other smaller projects and extend the mine life. It is yet to be approved by the company board. The other major project, VCR below 120, entails accessing the mineral reserves below 120 level. AngloGold Ashanti estimates that this project will add 2.5Moz to production for 10 years at a cost of R2.03bn ($252m). The VCR below 120 project is expected to increase the mine's life by eight years to 2024. The project was approved by the board in February 2007, following which construction began. On-reef development and thus the start of production is scheduled for 2013 with full production due in 2015.

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. We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting?

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."

The Marikana miners' strike or Lonmin strike was a wildcat strike at a mine owned by Lonmin in the Marikana area, close to Rustenburg, South Africa in 2012. The event garnered international attention following a series of violent incidents between the South African Police Service, Lonmin security, the leadership of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and strikers themselves, which resulted in the deaths of 44 people, the majority of whom were striking mineworkers killed on 16 August. At least 78 additional workers were also injured on 16 August. The total number of injuries during the strike remains unknown. In addition to the Lonmin strikers, there has been a wave of wildcat strikes across the South African mining sector. The first incidents of violence were reported to have started on 11 August after NUM leaders opened fire on NUM members who were on strike. Initial reports indicated that it was widely believed that two strikers died that day; however, it later turned out that two strikers were seriously wounded, but not killed, in the shooting by NUM members. This violence was followed by the death of another eight strikers, police and security personnel who were killed in the next three days. The shooting incident on 16 August that the press dubbed the Marikana massacre was the single most lethal use of force by South African security forces against civilians since 1960, and the end of the apartheid era. The shootings have been described as a massacre in the South African media and have been compared to the Sharpeville massacre in 1960. The incident also took place on the 25-year anniversary of a nationwide South African miners' strike. Controversy emerged after it was discovered that most of the victims were shot in the back and many victims were shot far from police lines. On 18 September, a mediator announced a resolution to the conflict, stating the striking miners had accepted a 22% pay rise, a one-off payment of 2,000 rand and would return to work 20 September. The strike is considered a seminal event in modern South African history, and was followed by similar strikes at other mines across South Africa, events which collectively made 2012 the most protest-filled year in the country since the end of apartheid.
