Transformation of South Africa's mining industry continues to pose a challenge to authorities, with Minister of Mineral Resources Ngoako Ramatlhodi having recently released the final mining charter report. The report found that only 6.3% of South African mining rights holders comply with the requirements of the Mining Charter. Major stakeholders within the sector including the Chamber of Mines and the National Union of Mineworkers attended, while AMCU boycotted the gathering. While Minister Ramatlhodi has announced that a sub-committee would be established to help curb retrenchments, AMCU is reported to be seeking a monthly wage of R12 500 in the gold mining sector, where workers are currently earning around R6 000 per month. But, how much can be said to be a decent wage for mineworkers?

Technology proves a viable solution to South Africa mining problems

Science, research and development are usually uneasy bedfellows - often because identifying a need, getting the funding to develop a solution and then commercializing technologies that are developed, can often be at odds. Take South Africa's mining sector, for example. On one hand, there's an urgent need to fix decades of environmental damage. On the other, there are limited resources - from shareholders, and the state, to fix the issue. CGTN's Angelo Coppola, takes up the story.

Sustainability Issues & Responses of the Mining Industry in Australia: Dr Dilhani Kapu Arachchilage
 
05:25
Dr Dilhani Kapu Arachchilage, from the School of Accounting, Finance and Economics at Edith Cowan University (ECU), presents her research "Key Contemporary Sustainability Issues and the Diversity of Responses of the Mining Industry in Australia" in ECU's 2012 Your Research In a Nutshell Competition. Dr Arachchilage's research focuses on sustainability development, which is a contemporary concept. She discusses research she undertook with ECU's School of Management. She discusses the popular definition for sustainable development, defined by the World Commission on Economic Development ~1987 as 'sustainable development is simply about meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of meeting the needs of future generations.' Dr Arachchilage sees sustainable development as an important issue as far as intra-generational equity is concerned and also as far as inter-generational equity is concerned. Dr Arachchilage's research looked at the 3 spheres identified as the key areas of sustainability development: environment, society and economy; supported by evidence in triple bottom line reporting (3BL) reporting and in GRI Initiative. Her study analysed 8 multinational companies who operate in Australia on the basis of 13 criteria across those 3 key spheres: - Environmental Performance: Biodiversity & Land Stewardship, Climate Change, Water Management - Social: Work & Community Safety, Stakeholder Engagement, HIV AIDS Reduction, Policies for Mine Lifecycle, Human Rights, Community Development - Economic: Supply Chain Management, Transparency & Accountability, External Performance Management, Sector Specific Global Initiatives For each criteria, Dr Arachchilage selected a number of indicators. As a result, her study examined about 67 indicators communicated in self reported sustainability reports, annual reports, media reports. Dr Arachchilage found that companies have selected different legitimation strategies in order to achieve social legitimacy and demonstrate they adhere to the social contract. While there were differences, there were 3 key legitimation strategies used by the multinational organisations she studied: - Disclosure of improvement - Alter public perception - Divert attention from issues and negative reports in the media For more information on Dr Dilhani Kapu Arachchilage see http://www.ecu.edu.au/schools/accounting-finance-economics/staff/profiles/faculty-research-scholar/dr-nirosha-dilhani-kapu-arachchilage ECU's Your Research in a Nutshell Competition is open to "early career" researchers at ECU.

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?

Grand Challenges for Engineering in Mining - Prof. Ismet Canbulat

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.
