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'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.

South Africa's Ancient Annunaki Gold Mines
 
01:36:19
Michael Tellinger has become an international authority on the origins of humankind and the vanished civilizations of southern Africa. Scholars have told us that the first civilization on Earth emerged in a land called Sumer some 6000 years ago. New archaeological and scientific discoveries made by Michael Tellinger, Johan Heine and a team of leading scientists, show that the Sumerians and even the Egyptians inherited all their knowledge from an earlier civilization that lived at the southern tip of Africa more than 200,000 years ago... mining gold. These were also the people who carved the first Horus bird, the first Sphinx, built the first pyramids and built an accurate stone calendar right in the heart of it all. Adam's Calendar, now referred to as ENKI's CALENDAR, is the flagship among millions of circular stone ruins, ancient roads, agricultural terraces and thousands of ancient mines, left behind by a vanished civilization which we now call the FIRST PEOPLE. These settlements cover most of southern Africa, an area about twice the size of Texas. They carved detailed images into the hardest rock, worshiped the sun, and were the first to carve an image of the Egyptian Ankh -- key of life and universal knowledge, 200,000 years before the Egyptians came to light. Michael's research reveals many of the latest scientific measurements and presents evidence that this vanished civilization had an astute knowledge of the laws of nature and the generation of free ENERGY from Mother Earth for all their needs. They used the power of sound and frequency as a source of energy, which underpins the scientific conclusions reached by Michael. In his book Temples Of The African Gods he graphically exposes these discoveries that will be the catalyst for rewriting our ancient human history. http://www.jamesswagger.com/ Interview by James Swagger with Michael Tellinger @ Capricorn Radio

1940s SOUTH AFRICA TRAVELOGUE  KIMBERLY DIAMOND MINES & GOLD MINES 43254
 
19:20
Produced in 1948 by Louis De Rochemont Associates, RICHES OF THE VELD is an educational film that gives a rosy portrait of South Africa in the era before apartheid ended. Directed by Bill Colleran, the movie vividly showcases the immense mineral and agricultural wealth of the nation, and includes a visit to the Kimberly Diamond mines. The film features shots of Johannesburg, Kimberly and Cape Town, and also shows a gold refinery and gold mine, vineyards, orange groves, and cattle ranches in the rich Veld. The Veld, also spelled veldt, is a type of wide open rural landscape in Southern Africa. Particularly, it is a flat area covered in grass or low scrub, especially in the countries of South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia. A certain sub-tropical woodland ecoregion of Southern Africa has been officially defined as the Bushveld by the World Wide Fund for Nature. Trees are found only in a few places—frost, fire, and grazing animals allow grass to grow but prevent the growth of trees.

Congo, My Precious. The Curse of the coltan mines in Congo
 
52:01
Watch more https://rtd.rt.com/tags/illegal-mining/ The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is one of the world’s most resource-rich countries. A wide range of rare minerals can be found here in abundance, all commanding high prices in world commodity markets. Diamonds for jewellery, tantalum, tungsten and gold for electronics; uranium used in power generation and weaponry and many others. Congo has copious deposits of raw materials that are in high demand internationally but remains one of the poorest countries in the world. From colonisation, with the horrors of slavery and other atrocities, to a turbulent and equally brutal present in which militant groups control the mines, Congo’s richness in natural resources has brought nothing but misery. Referred to as “conflict minerals”, these riches leave only a trail of death, destruction and poverty. Under Belgian rule, Congolese labourers were often required to meet quotas when mining different minerals. Failure could mean punishment by having a hand cut off with a machete. The country gained independence in 1960, but that didn’t put a stop to slave and child labour or to crimes being committed to extract and exploit the minerals. Warring militant fractions from inside the country and beyond seized control of mines for their own benefit while terrorising local populations. For our translator, Bernard Kalume Buleri, his country’s history of turmoil is very personal; like most Congolese people, he and his family fell victim to the unending mineral based power struggle. Born in the year of his country’s independence, he has lived through war and seen his homeland torn apart by violent looting and greed. His story is a damning testament, illustrating how nature’s bounty, instead of being a blessing, becomes a deadly curse.

World's Deepest Mine - Gold Alchemy
 
04:51
South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

Description: Over 1 million circular stone structures lie scattered throughout southern Africa. Until recently these have been called cattle kraal, of little historic value. Extensive research by Michael Tellinger and others has revealed that these are the remains of a vanished ancient civilization dating back tens of thousands of years. It covered an area larger than modern day Johannesburg and London together. Tools, artifacts, and petroglyphs indicate that the Egyptians and Sumerians got much of their knowledge and imagery from this vanished civilization. All of this is crowned by a stone calendar now called Adam's Calendar that is forcing the academics to question human origins. Scientific evidence shows that this was also a gold mining culture and many prehistoric gold mines are still present throughout the area. Biog: Michael Tellinger has become one of South Africa's bestselling export authors. His regular articles on human origins and his book Slave Species of God have been praised by readers in over 20 countries. He graduated in 1983 from the University Of Witwatersrand Medical School, Johannesburg, with a B.Pharmaceutics degree, a passion for the cosmos, genetics and human history. His research and astute understanding of his subject matter has made him a regular guest on many radio shows in the USA and UK. Websites: http://www.slavespecies.com/ http://www.adamscalendar.com

SOUTH AFRICA: GOLD MINING
 
03:08
English/Nat International gold sales recently plunged the price of the precious metal to a 22-year low. Despite protests from all quarters the sales are set to continue leaving the future of tens of thousands of South African miners hanging in the balance. This week South Africa's second largest gold miner, Gold Fields Ltd, announced that a strike against retrenchments at one of its mines may spread to other sites. When Britain sold 25 tons of gold recently, it set the price plummeting and some of South Africa's less profitable mines were forced to give notice of lay offs. Britain is scheduled to sell another 100 tons of gold by the end of this year. Recent protests by both South African mine companies and mineworkers unions appear to have fallen on deaf ears. The South African National Union of Mineworkers warned that if the gold price remains below 260 dollars an ounce, it would mean that 80-thousand gold miners would lose their jobs.. It's estimated that each miner supports another 10 people, so this loss could affect around 800-thousand South Africans livelihoods. Joe Funga has worked at the West Driefontein Mine for 17 years. A member of the mainly white Mineworkers Union, he has already made enquiries about his union's programme for laid off miners. Like other miners who live in company houses, Funga only pays 1.70 dollars a month to live in his house with his wife and two children. And if his job goes, so does his home. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I'm not feeling very happy about it because the whole issue is, what do you call it, got an effect on our families and got an effect on the people in the shafts, from a miner to an omsetter (fitter and turner) and the artisans as well." SUPER CAPTION: Joe Funga, Gold Miner Funga starts work at 4a-m where he is in charge of three gangs of about 10 miners each. For them the mine's tunnels are their world and they've long accepted the inhospitable conditions. It also provides them with a livelihood in a country wracked by unemployment. For at least eight hours a day Funga joins his colleagues and descends 800 metres under the earth where they retrieve the rock that produces gold. Since July 15th workers at another mine in the Free State province workers have downed tools and brought production to a complete halt. They are protesting the imminent laying off of 600 workers. Next week a neighbouring mine, Beatrix may also join the strike in support of its colleagues. For another Gold Mine it seems that it's already too late. E-R-P-M east of Johannesburg, is set to close and 5-thousand workers will lose their jobs. Back at Crown Mine one of Funga's workmates, Sabata Moeane is a member of the mainly black National Union of Mineworkers. Recently he's also been investigating alternative employment possibilities should he be laid off. The National Union of Mineworkers is suggesting ways of laid-off miners becoming self-employed should they lose their jobs. With South Africa's high rate of unemployment, it may be the only solution for people like Moeane and Funga. Moeane has been working on the mine for ten years and lives near the mine site with his wife and four children, also in a company house. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think at this point in time we are really in a catastrophic position because the gold price has declined tremendously and that can cost our jobs." SUPER CAPTION: Sabata Moeane, Gold Miner Miners such as Joe Funga and Sabata Moeane can only hope that their jobs will survive the the current Gold crisis.

South African gold mines choke the poor
 
04:22
Mining has a long history in South Africa, beginning with diamonds, and then followed by gold from the 1870s onwards. The gold mining sector has since expanded into the largest in the world, but declining reserves have led to the closure of hundreds of mines around South Africa’s largest city, Johannesburg. The legacy includes polluted ponds and huge piles of waste called ‘tailings’. This audio slideshow visits a site where these tailings sit beside some of the country’s poorest communities, contaminating both their air and water supplies. Wind blows dust far and wide from these mineral mountains and rainfall creates acid water, which leaches into surrounding streams and wetlands, killing wildlife and contaminating water supplies. Local authorities have installed water filtration plants in the area to reduce the health risks for nearby residents. But the problem persists. http://www.scidev.net/global/water/multimedia/south-african-gold-mines-poor.html

Promotion of small scale mining in South Africa hits stall
 
02:22
In theory, the junior mining sector in South Africa should be booming. The term "junior" in this case refers to small operators who usually research, prospect, and explore for new mineral finds. As Angelo Coppola reports, given the ore body that South Africa is located on top of, these firms have immense opportunity.

200,000 Year Old Ancient Technology That Indicates The History Books Are Wrong
 
48:36
It looks like history textbooks may soon be rewritten. Most of the circular, glyph-pattern stone structures were in the past assumed to be tribal ruins from past African communities. But the fused-quartz, stone constructs mark a grid of ancient roads, possible agricultural terraces and most importantly: thousands of gold mines--to indicate some ancient industiral mining community with possible advanced sound technology for levitating heavy stones and gold. The “stone settlements” cover most of southern Africa, west of the port of Maputo, in a remote region 150 miles inland, a sprawl of archaeological remnants of an ancient city cover a possible 1500 square miles. Rogue scientists and archaeologists checking the area estimate that this is part of an even bigger grid of 10,000 square miles that may have been fluorishing 160,000 to 200,000 BCE. Local farmers had assumed all of these stone glyph patterns were made by indigenous African peoples from the past and never bothered to check their archaeological significance.

Michael Tellinger and Jim Marrs Suppressed Ancient History [FULL VIDEO]
 
02:56:51
Jim Marrs and Michael Tellinger explore Ancient technologies. Long before the Egyptians saw the light of day, an advanced civilisation of humans lived in southern Africa mining gold. These were also the people who carved the first Horus bird, the first Sphinx, built the first Pyramids and built an accurate stone calendar right in the heart of it all. New archaeological and scientific discoveries made by Michael Tellinger, and a team of leading scientists, show that the Sumerians and even the Egyptians inherited all their knowledge from an earlier civilisation that lived at the southern tip of Africa more than 200,000 years ago... mining gold.

Bizarre Discoveries in Mines
 
08:36
Here are 11 of the most unusual findings deep in the earth like ancient and time primate fossils or trapped toads alive in rocks!! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr # 7 Toads found in Rock One strange phenomena that still doesn’t have an explanation are toads that find themselves entombed deep into stone and continue to live. For years quarriers and miners have discovered to their surprise, live toads inside of the rocks they crack open. In some cases the toads are found 5, 10, and even 20 feet deep inside of rock. In all cases, they have no visible way in or out and yet in all cases they are all still alive. This bizarre phenomena is often called “toad in the hole”. No one knows how these toads find themselves in the rock, or how they survive without any water, food, or air. # 6 Ghost Miners in Mponeng The world’s deepest gold mine called the Mponeng Mine located in South Africa runs so far into the ground with so many winding tunnels that it’s almost like a dark underground city. The expansive, dark, and hot mine is almost impossible to completely keep watch over so every once in awhile an illegal squatter will be discovered. Mponeng squatters are called “ghost miners” and will find empty caverns to make their home in, illegally mine gold to sell above ground, and will even meet with prostitutes in the mines. # 5 The Bold Travelers of Mponeng - Desulforudis audaxviator In the world’s deepest gold mine, a new species of bacterium was discovered called Desulforudis audaxviator. Audaxviator translates to “bold traveller” which refers to the fact that the bacteria was found 2 miles below the surface of the Earth and is the only organism in its ecosystem. The strange bacteria has evolved to live without sunshine or oxygen. Instead, it lives off of hydrogen and sulfide as food, which come from the breakdown of radioactive elements. Basically, it’s a nuclear waste eating bacteria. It’s the only one of its kind and have amazed scientists with its complete solitude underground. # 4 Giant Roach Fossil Found in Ohio Coal Mine Geologists were combing through an old coal mine in an area known for its plant fossils when they discovered an extremely rare fossil. It was a giant roach fossil - about 4 inches long and twice as big as most modern American roaches. The fossil is rare because it’s completely in tact, while most insect fossils are only partial imprints. Fossils in the cave also preserved some of the smallest cockroach fossils ever found and their color patterns. Inside the coal mine, even more rare insect fossils were found including a rare ancient arachnid and a 60 inch long and 12 inch wide centipede. The chemistry of this coal mine in Ohio somehow preserved these insects with extreme detail that is not seen anywhere else. # 3 Dead Body found in Ghost Town Mine Hobby adventurers had the scare of their life when they were exploring an abandoned ghost town called Whroo in Victoria, Australia. The two were in the ghost town’s abandoned mine when they found a dead body covered in plastic and shoved into a deeper hole inside. The victim was a 50 year old man in a Neil Young shirt and the perpetrators were later found to be a 26 year old man and 30 year old woman. The details on this case are scarce, but it has all the makings of a really good CSI episode. # 2 Four Square Miles of Carboniferous Forest Discovered The fossils of almost an entire forest from the Carboniferous period was uncovered in the ceiling of two adjacent coal mines in Illinois. This discovery is the largest single-period fossil discovery in recorded history. Archaeologists delved into the 250 feet deep mine to explore and record the fossils. There were upwards of 200 specimens of detailed shrubs, trees, flowers, and even insects. # 1 Tiny, Strange Primate Fossil In the Krabi coal mine of Thailand, archaeologists uncovered a new species of a teacup sized primate. They found mandibles that belong to the pea-sized primates called Krabia minuta. Krabia minuta were native to Asia and are the ancestors to all monkeys, apes, and humans. They were impressively able to make it to Africa despite being separated from a body of water at the time that was bigger than the Mediterrenean sea. This bizarre find is very important for archaeologists, because it indicates a period of extreme evolution of primates in the area and will continue to yield more discoveries in years to come.
