🇿🇦 What's the future of South Africa's mining sector? | Inside Story
 
24:56
South Africa has some of the world’s biggest reserves of platinum, gold, iron ore and coal. But mining now makes up less than 7% of its economic output, a steep fall from 20% in the 1970s. Mining companies are blaming low prices and soaring production costs for their plans to cut thousands of jobs at a time the country is struggling with high unemployment rates. Mining is also intertwined with race relations in South Africa. The people who work deep underground in often dangerous conditions are overwhelmingly black, while the executives overseeing them are mainly white. Some of the firms have pushed back against government plans to make them bring on more black shareholders. So, is it a losing battle for the mining sector? And can South Africa move away from its dependence on commodities? Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom Guests: Lebohang Pheko - Senior Research Fellow at Trade Collective - a non-profit think-tank.

Africa's mineral industry is the largest mineral industries in the world. Mineral-rich countries in Africa enjoyed a mining boom between 2002 and 2007 as metal and oil prices nearly tripled. Companies competed furiously for new mines to meet growing world demand. But since then, amidst a global economic downturn, it hasn't been an easy time for the mining sector with commodity price volatility.

Grand Challenges for Engineering in Mining - Prof. Ismet Canbulat
 
56:34
Subscribe to AboutUNSW if you are a current or prospective student https://www.youtube.com/user/UNSWCommunity The 2015 Kenneth Finlay Memorial Lecture "Grand Challenges for Engineering in Mining" is presented by Professor Ismet Canbulat. This lecture is also presented as part of the UNSW Vice Chancellor's Professorial Inaugural Lecture Series. Synopsis Mining is an inherently challenging multifaceted industry with complex interactions between different disciplines - from exploration of reserves to processing of ore. At the times of high commodity prices some of those challenges were not recognised or simply ignored. Today, the challenges in mining are greater than ever before with increasing costs and decreasing commodity prices, and those challenges are becoming critical today for the survival of mining companies. There have also been many great engineering achievements in mining that made the necessary step-change in safety, productivity and sustainability. But more engineering innovations are required rapidly. This presentation will highlight those engineering challenges that will need to be solved for sustainable mining in the 21st century. About the Speaker Dr Ismet Canbulat has been Professor and Chair of Kenneth Finlay Chair of Rock Mechanics since December 2014. He has 24 years of research, consultancy, management and on-site experience in Turkey, South Africa and Australia. He has a BSc Mining Engineering, MSc and PhD degrees in Mining/Rock Engineering.

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?
