Mponeng is a gold mine in South Africa's Gauteng province. It extends over 4 kilometres below the surface, and is considered to be one of the most substantial gold mines in the world. It is also currently the world's deepest mine. The trip from the surface to the bottom of the mine takes over an hour. Video link: https://youtu.be/6ZtYInuOKtE Thanks for watching

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.

SOUNDBITE (English): Ernest Blom, President of World Federation of Diamond Bourses: "Put this into perspective, this is a Cullinan diamond. The Cullinan diamond was 3,100 plus carats and it was the biggest and largest gem quality diamond ever found and ever has been found. If this diamond in fact exists and it's a six-thousand carat diamond, you can imagine A: how big it is and how priceless it would be if it is a gem-quality diamond. What I am intrigued about as a diamantier, is actually to go along and have look at the diamond, have look at the colour, have look at the purity and to hold something as unique as that, if it's true, in my hands." 4. Set up of Two point Five group Chairman Brett Jolly 5. SOUNDBITE (English): Brett Jolly, Group Chairman,Two point Five: "About that. (Picks up a glass ashtray to indicate size). That should give you a fairly good idea. It's sort of there (indicates with one hand over ashtray). The picture that I've got, it's sort of a light green colour and there's a cell phone by the side of it . I've got the picture here actually. It's sort of yeah, about that. (Holds up cell phone and ashtray)." 6. Cutaway of Brett's Hands 7. SOUNDBITE (English): Brett Jolly, Group Chairman,Two point Five: "Totally, absolutely, totally unbelievable. The Cape Times got the story, I don't know if you know that, yesterday, and apparently they phoned the Diamond Commission and an unnamed person in the Diamond Commission said 'highly unbelievable'. And I said to my friend it's not highly unbelievable, it's bloody impossible, you just don't expect this type of thing." 8. Close-up of the picture taken of the diamond 9. Jolly on the phone 10. SOUNDBITE (English): Brett Jolly, Group Chairman,Two point Five: "I am a property developer and obviously it's nice to have a big stone that's worth a great deal of money. But it is not going to change our lives overnight. The thing needs to follow its due process and in terms of the current law, it must be reported to the relevant authorities, it must go to the mining commission and so on, so there's a whole process. And I think people are trying to maybe rush that process in terms of a few hours when in actual fact it's probably a few days if not a week, to get the whole thing done the way it should be done." 11. Set up of Jewelry Council of South Africa Executive Director Leslie Milner 12. SOUNDBITE (English): Leslie Milner, Executive Director, Jewelry Council of South Africa: "It seems to be a perfect octahedral shape, the colour seems to have a greenish tinge which we do see in diamonds. They are a common thing which you do see. But just my gut feeling is the shape is too good to be true, it seems such a perfect shape. But without actually seeing the stone I can't really comment. I would love to see it, I'd love to see the real thing. If it is a real diamond it would be something really amazing." 13. Various of charts on wall displaying types and different cuts of diamonds STORYLINE: Mystery surrounds reports on Tuesday of a diamond twice the size of the world's largest stone apparently unearthed by a small South African mining company, with industry experts saying the claim still needs to be verified. Brett Jolly, property developer and shareholder of the unnamed mining company, said the stone of about 7,000 carats was found at their operation in the North-West province on Monday afternoon. "Totally, absolutely, totally unbelievable," said Jolly, looking a bit shell-shocked. Experts who talked to AP Television said it would be an incredible discovery if true.

From the worlds largest gold mine found on the top of a mountain to the largest diamond mine in the world here are the most massive mines in the world! Subscribe to American EYE! 5.. Asbestos Mine, Canada Also known as the Jeffrey Mine, it’s located in Asbestos, Quebec and it was in operation until 2012. It’s a whopping 2 kilometers wide and 370 meters deep! Check out this thing on google maps and you can tell how completely massive this thing is! It’s the by far the largest asbestos mine in the world. For a long period of time, people would use this mineral to put into their walls and keep their homes from catching on fire! But recently there’s been a link with asbestos and a disease called mesothelioma, which is a lung condition. This is a toxic substance that people should avoid, so obviously this large mine went out of business. The lake at the bottom might look like an inviting blue, but you can bet your bottom dollar, it’s highly toxic! The small town that grew with the thriving asbestos industry feels like they’ve kind of lost their identity once the mine was forced to close, but people do still live there. 4. Mcarthur River Uranium Mine In case you were wondering which mine produces the most uranium in the world, that would be of course the Mcarthur River uranium mine in Saskatchewan Canada. This huge deposit was found in 1988 and finally a mining operation took place in 1997, when it began producing what’s known as Yellowcake. It’s not the kind of yellow cake you’d eat with your grandparents. This stuff has a horrific odor and basically what it is, is concentrated uranium powder which can then be used for powering nuclear reactors. We imagine this powdery substance is quite difficult to get ahold of. There aren’t a ton of photos of this place but, it does produce about 13 percent of the global uranium production across the globe. 3. Diavik Diamond Mine In case you thought it was Africa who had all the massive diamond mines, think again! The Diavik Diamond mine, found in the the northwest territories of Canada is one of the largest producers of diamonds in the Northern hemisphere and this place is pretty crazy! They annually produce 7 million carats of diamonds each year and you better believe it’s not easy to get here. The Diavik mine is found north of the arctic circle and it’s definitely cold! This photo here shows the subarctic landscapes that surround the diamond mine. You thought getting to work in the morning was tough for you? Imagine trying to get to work here! Just recently in 2015, this diamond produced what was known as the Diavik Foxfire 187.7 which is one of the largest rough gem quality diamonds ever produced. 2. Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposits at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. The construction of this in the frigid conditions of Siberia must have been grueling and downright cruel. Sources state that the machinery used at this mine had to be covered at night or it would freeze Are the diamonds worth freezing to death?! It’s unoperational today but Some claim that there’s still a bunch of diamonds in this mine and the whole thing could be worth about 12 Billion dollars. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. Bingham Copper Mine The bingham copper mine located near Salt Lake City Utah is home to the biggest pit in the world and it’s been in operation since 1903. It’s about 2.5 miles wide and if it were a stadium, it would be able to fit an estimated 9.5 million people. It keeps getting bigger and bigger too! Diligent workers can move about 250,000 tons of rock each day and it’s even become a tourist attraction in recent years before a massive landslide took place. Some claim that this was the biggest non volcanic landslide to take place in North American modern history. This photo we see here shows you the aftermath of this massive landslide and Bingham Copper mine and it makes you wonder how safe some of the conditions at these mines truly are. The landslides were so massive, that they actually triggered a few small earthquakes! Experts estimated that 165 tons of earth slide down from the top of the mine all the way to the bottom.

Proof that diamonds are getting harder to find can be seen in the South African bush, where one of the world's largest mining companies is spending $2 billion USD tunnelling beneath a vast open-pit mine. De Beers has spent 25 years digging a 450-metre deep by one-kilometre wide hole to access diamond-rich rock from the surface at the Venetia mine, close to the border with Zimbabwe and Botswana.

Trade is better than aid for Africa. They say. In a journey through copper thieves and mine barons in the north of Zambia, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind that slogan. From a distance they look like ants, the hundreds of men digging holes in the rubble slopes of an old copper mine in Zambia. They are looking for copper ore in the walls of the enormous pit, without wearing helmets and without reinforcing the walls of their caves. Life-threatening, of course. But they find enough to live on. Is it legal, Bram asks. They laugh about it. No of course not. But the Chinese buyer does not really ask where they get their ore from. You just have to leave when the guards of the mine come. How different is it in a huge copper mine in full operation. Huge machines drive off and on. Sirens sound regularly, followed by explosions. Here, 300,000 tons of stone are moved every day, and the copper ore from it yields a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But it is a foreign company that raises that money. And if the productivity gets too low after about twenty years, the investors will move on. From the air it is easy to see how far-reaching it all is. The mine takes big chores out of the country and turns huge plains into a kind of lunar landscape. But other changes are also visible. Houses, schools, a golf course. Prosperity, therefore, emphasizes a mine boss. Seven years ago this was still a dull provincial town, and now look! A little further on the big changes are about to begin. There is a giant copper mine here, and for that an area of no less than four hundred square kilometers is expropriated. The new owners promise economic prosperity. Did not a city like Johannesburg also start out as a simple mine? Naturally, people living in the area can not stay. They have worked the land for generations, but they can not show ownership documents. They have not been asked anything. They do get compensation for their houses, chickens and fruit trees, but not for the ground. "Everything under the ground is state property," says a representative of the mining company, "and that is what the state can rent out to us." Residents who do not want to leave are squatters who violate the law from that moment on. Even though they were born and lived there all their lives. Those former residents are moved to neat new houses outside the area. With toilet, and bigger than the previous house, but without land to grow food. Some of them seem satisfied with that. Most do not. 'In Africa, land has sentimental value. You are no one without land, 'says one of them. "So you're destroying these people. They will not pass on anything to the next generation. " Episode 6. Copper fever For Africa, trade is better than aid, or so they say. On a journey to copper thieves and mine bosses, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind the slogan.

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.

Check out these 10 countries with the largest gold reserves in the world! This top 10 list features some of the richest and wealthiest countries on earth that have tons of gold bars stacked up somewhere! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "SURPRISING And Interesting Facts About Money!" video here: https://youtu.be/ONpChSPqVc4 Watch our "Most AMAZING Discoveries With A Metal Detector!" video here: https://youtu.be/45JveYKafVo Watch our "Most EXPENSIVE Diamonds In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/RcZATf3Lmb0 10.) India According to the World Gold Council, the Bank of India currently holds 557.7 tons of gold. It is one of the largest stores of gold in the world! This makes up 9.9 % of the country’s total foreign reserve. Foreign exchange reserves is money or other assets held by a nation’s central bank so they can back the national currency. India, home to 1.25 billion people, is the number one largest consumer of the precious metal. Furthermore, India is one of the most reliable drivers of global demand. For example, India’s festival and wedding season, which runs from October to December, has historically been a major market for gold. And probably, one of the most interesting facts about India and gold is that India rarely invests much in gold. This is because as a country, India operates under the belief that buying gold leads to a deficit. And their belief must be proving right as things also seem to be improving for India. For instance, if you look at the last few years, India has increased its gold reserves from 557.74 to 557.77. While this might not seem like a lot, India is also at its highest point in history! In addition to what the country holds, Indian households which are considered the world’s largest hoarders of gold, hold a record 23,000-24,000 tons, which is worth about $800 billion. 9.) Netherlands In the past few years, the Netherlands has held 52% of its foreign reserve in gold. The Netherlands has a reported 612.45 tons. In 2016 it was reported that the bank was looking for a place to store all its gold because they were going to renovate the vaults and needed to moving it. The Dutch central bank is planning to move the country’s gold reserves from the center of Amsterdam to a new complex called the Cash Center. Like most countries, Dutch gold is also held in banks around the world to reduce risk. Security measures to guard the gold 24/7 have become a problem in Amsterdam. 189,000 kilos of gold will be moved at the beginning of 2022. Maybe this is one reason that over the last decade and a half, the Netherlands was selling off tons of gold in order to reduce its reserve. However, there weren’t that many buyers out there and they sold less than the country wanted. More recently the country has had less ambition to sell gold. Currently, the country holds the same amount of tons, 612.45 that they have over the last few years. However, the country has increased its percentage of foreign reserves to 61.2 %. 8.) Japan Japan is another country which had been increasing its gold reserves since the 1960’s. Their official gold holdings were reported at 765.2 tons. About 2.4% of Japan’s gold today is in foreign reserve. Historically, Japan has always held a bit more gold than other countries. This was true until 2011, when they began to sell some of their reserve in order to pump money into the economy after the tsunami and the following Fukushima nuclear disaster. But even with selling, Japan’s central bank has been one of the most aggressive practitioners of quantitative easing. For example, in January of 2016, it lowered interest rates below zero, which has helped fuel demand in gold around the world. 7.) Switzerland Prior to 1997, Switzerland was steadily building its gold reserves. In 1997, the decision was made to sell some of those reserves to bolster the Swiss currency and diversify the foreign reserves. The percent of foreign reserves in Switzerland is currently 6.7 %. Switzerland actually has the world’s largest reserves of gold per capita and currently has reported 1,040 tons. Over time, many citizens in the country started to feel like the bank was getting rid of too much gold. They then banded together with the “Save the Swiss” movement. However, once everyone was able to vote in 2014, the vote came to a no, and gold continued to be sold. During World War II, Switzerland became the center of the gold trade in Europe, making transactions with both the Allies and Axis powers. Today, much of its gold trading is done with Hong Kong and China. Around last year, the Swiss National Bank made a $5.9 billion profit, reportedly from its gold holdings.

How Coal Is Mined and Refined - Top Coal Mining Spots in the World - Documentaries. Welcome to DOCUMENTARIES - home of the best documentary movies and documentary films. Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine a pit, and the above-ground structures the pit head. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States, "colliery" has been used to describe a coal mine operation but nowadays the word is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunnelling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts, to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, hydraulic jacks and shearers.

As suppliers of components for the giant power stations Kusile and Medupi, German companies like SIEMENS, Bilfinger Berger or Rheinmetall Defense Electronics bear a responsibility for those problems in the coal sector of South Africa.

12 Oct 2015, at 10h00, oral argument begins in Court GC in the Johannesburg High Court in Bongani Nkala and 55 Others vs Harmony Gold Mining and 31 Others, in an application to certify the biggest class action in South African history. The class they aim to certify is the 100 000+ current and former gold mineworkers who contracted Silicosis (black lung) and are still suffering from its devastating consequences. In the alternative, they seek certification of classes of employees of individual mining companies. Hundreds of thousands of workers have died of this entirely preventable disease over the last 130 years as their lives were not valuable enough for mining companies to incur the costs necessary to eliminate it.

“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.

English/Zulu/Natsound Miners in South Africa have won a major victory in their battle for better conditions. The country's biggest mining company has finally agreed to improve the housing provided for its workers. Union officials hope other companies will soon follow suit. In a country with a large mining workforce, the decision by one of South Africa's largest mine owners to improve living conditions for its workers is being seen as a breakthrough in miners rights. Miners across the country hope the lead set by Johannesburg Consolidated Industries will be followed by their own employers. But so far democracy has not had any real effect on the conditions endured by South Africa's miners. Many feel that the new agreement is too little, too late. At this mine outside Johannesburg miners live in the most basic of surroundings, where even the drinking cups are chained to the taps. SOUNDBITE: (Zulu) `Our management, they say they don't have money so they are unable to improve our housing conditions. They are unable to give us electricity, they say there isn't enough gold coming out' SUPER CAPTION: Mzwandile Mkhupa 16 miners sleep in this cramped accommodation and the thousands of miners here have only a few communal showers to wash in. The toilet areas has no doors or walls and the stench of sewage fills the air. Miners here are now waiting to see if the agreement signed in Johannesburg will have any real effect on their lives.

Suppose there is fire underground and the shaft is damaged, how would workers come out (from) underground? I think the lesson is that we need to put safety (at) number one in planning and make sure that at all times, people can be saved quickly." 8. Mineworkers standing around entrance to mine shaft STORYLINE: About 3,000 gold miners were trapped a mile underground on Wednesday when falling pipe damaged the elevator. However the company began rescuing workers through a smaller shaft and estimated it would take 10 hours to get them all out. Early on Thursday morning, a company official said about 350 miners had been evacuated from the mine so far. There were no injuries and there was no immediate danger to any of the workers in Harmony Gold Mining Company's Elandsrand Mine, company and union officials said. Patrice Motsepe, the Chairman of Harmony Gold Mining Company told reporters that a number of miners had already been rescued and "the process of bring the rest out the mine is proceeding successfully." The miners were trapped at a level slightly more than a mile underground when a hydraulic pressure pipe blew out at a weld. The accident happened at 6:20 a.m (0420 GMT). Officials said by 4:15 a.m. (0215 GMT) about 350 miners had been evacuated from the mine. A regional chairman for the union, said there was ventilation for the miners still waiting underground and officials were in contact with the men by a telephone line in the mine. The official confirmed that the trapped miners were in good condition but were hungry, angry and frustrated with the situation. Senzeni Zokwana, the president of the National Union of Mineworkers, said the accident should be a wake-up call for the industry. "I think the lesson is that we need to put safety (at) number one in planning and make sure that at all times, people can be saved quickly," said Zokwana. A spokesman for the union charged that the mine was not properly maintained - but Harmony executives dismissed union criticism saying the shaft was in very good condition with a lot of new infrastructure. According to a government Mine Health and Safety Council report in September, 199 mineworkers died in accidents, mostly rock falls over the past year. South Africa is the world's largest producer of gold as well as a number of other minerals. Harmony's Elandsrand mine is the third largest producing gold mine in South Africa - the company said it produces an average of about 600 kilogrammes (1320 pounds) of gold every month.

Sasol is a South African business with a rich history. Since our inception in 1950, we have grown into a global player with a presence in more than 32 countries and we employ 32 000 diverse employees around the world. Most people would think that this is what makes us an iconic South African brand. But there is so much more to our story. If you were to ask an ordinary consumer what Sasol does, it would be fair to assume that many people would answer that we make petrol. What people do not know is that we make thousands of other products that are used in everyday life and because of the scale of our operations we are able to make a meaningful difference in all the regions we operate in. Sasol was established 68 years ago and is today a proudly South African, global integrated chemicals and energy company. Sasol is listed on both the Johannesburg and New York Stock Exchange. Sasol has two large industrial sites in South Africa. The first, 80 kilometres south of Johannesburg, is called Sasolburg. The Sasolburg site covers an area of 51,4 km2, comprising three chemical facilities and two power generation facilities. Sasol’s and South Africa’s first stand-alone gas-to-power plant was commissioned in Sasolburg in December 2012 – It is the largest power plant using gas engines installed in South Africa, making Sasol the second largest power producer in the country. Sasol’s second industrial site is based in Secunda about 120 kilometres south-east of Johannesburg. Secunda Synfuels Operations operates the world’s only commercial coal-based synthetic fuels manufacturing facility. Both the Sasolburg and Secunda world-class industrial plants house our Sasol South Africa businesses. Sasol South Africa is a subsidiary of Sasol Limited and is Sasol’s largest operating entity and currently the biggest generator of cash flow in the Sasol group. The products produced at our Sasolburg and Secunda sites are used in a large variety of applications, including aerosols, cosmetics, fragrances, packaging, paints, adhesives, pharmaceuticals, polishes, printing and plastics and mining (particularly in gold extraction), pulp and paper, steel, textiles, water treatment and purification, agricultural fertilisers and chemicals. Sasol is also the third largest producer of coal in South Africa. We produce over 40 million tons of coal annually. Our mining operations are an integral part of Sasol South Africa’s value chain as coal feedstock from our mines, is used for the production of our high quality fuels and chemicals. Our chemicals business is one of the leading producers of hard and medium wax globally. As South Africa’s largest industrial company, Sasol is directly and indirectly responsible for 4% of the country’s economic activity. Over the past five years, Sasol’s capital spend in South Africa has exceed R94 billion. These are just some of the lesser known facts about Sasol and part of the reason why Sasol has been a leader in its field for almost 70 years.

The mine began production in 2015, and ramped up to an estimated production of 1.5 million carats in 2016. The mine is located just three kilometers from the Nyurbinskaya pipe, the principal asset within the Nakyn field. Botuobinskaya had an estimated 69.3 million carats of reserves as of January 1, 2015, and should continue to produce for more than 30 years. 9 - Mines - Venetia Where - south Africa E.st.reseves - 71.8. million carat It is currently the largest producing diamond mine in South Africa, and is located northwest of Kruger National Park near the border with Zimbabwe. In 2013, De Beers committed to invest up to $2 billion to expand the Venetia mine underground, with production to commence in 2022. The expansion plan could add considerably more reserves to the project than currently estimated. The company estimates that the expansion will extend the life of the mine until 2046. 8 - mines - Grib Where - Russia E.st.reseves - 91.5 million carat Grib is the only significant diamond mine in Russia that is not operated by ALROSA. It was discovered by oil and gas giant Lukoil during prospecting for natural gas near Verkhotina in the Arkhangelsk region of North-Western Russia. 2016 production is expected to be around 4.5 million carats. 7 - Mines - Argyle Where - Australia E.st.reseves - 93.1 million carat Although now nearing the end of its lifespan, the Argyle mine in Australia has been the largest producer of diamonds in history, and has produced more than 750 million carats of diamonds since 1982. After 30 years of mining the open pit, the mine transitioned to a fully underground operation in 2014, with an $800 million investment from Rio Tinto, the mine’s owner. 6 - mines - Mir(mirny) Where - Russia E.st.reseves - 97.4 million carat The Mir mine is an awe-inspiring site, and now ranks as the second-largest excavated hole on Earth. It is so big that flying over the mine is banned because of reports of airborne vehicles being sucked into the pit by the temperature and pressure deviations around the hole. It measures nearly 1.2 km in diameter, and more than 500 m in depth. The mine played a very important role in the development of the diamond industry and the eventual collapse of the De Beers cartel. 5 - mines - Udachny Where - Russia E.st.reseves - 108 million carat Udachny has been the most prolific mine in Russia’s history and could be considered the twin mine of Mir. It is 640m deep, and is so steep in places that it poses a safety risk for hauling trucks to fall off the side of the road. The open pit has been in operation since 1971, and has yielded $80 billion worth of diamonds from 340 million tonnes of ore. Like Mir, Udachny has transitioned into a fully underground mine, with an over $800 million development plan. Development is currently underway. 4 - mines - Vatican Where - Angola E.sr.reseves - 110 million carat Angola, accounting for 70% of the country’s production. It was first discovered in 1965 by artisanal diggers in the region. A mine was developed in 1994, and is owned and operated by Sociedade Mineira de Catoca, a joint venture which includes the state-run mining company ENDIAMA, and Russia-based diamond producer ALROSA, amongst others. The mine began production in 1997. 3 - mines - Jubilee Where - Russia E.st.reseves- 125.4 million carat Jubilee was the largest diamond mine in the world for many years, but it dropped to fourth spot due to high production rates at other mines over the past several years. The mine’s 2015 production was estimated at 9 million carats. However, with the addition of unproven underground reserves. 2 - mines - Jwaneng Where - Botswana E.st.reseves - 149.1 million carat Not surprisingly, the highest producing diamond mine in the world by value is also one of the largest. The Jwaneng mine is located 160 kilometers southwest of Gaborone in the south of Botswana. 1 - mines - Orapa Where - Botswana E.st.reseves - 151.4 million carat The mine in Botswana is located about 500km northwest of the capital city of Gaborone in central Botswana. Orapa, meaning ‘resting place of lions’, was discovered in the 1960s, shortly after Botswana gained independence from Britain. It began production in 1971, and has been one of the highest-producing mines in the world, ever since hitting a peak production of 17.3 million carats in 2006.

Rio Tinto is one of the biggest mining groups in the world. The workers at one mine in South Africa had become unsettled about rumours the mine was to close and about safety standards. The Kgotla Company organised an operations-wide Kgotla over a 10-day period, during which 4,000 people expressed their thoughts. Some 500 ideas emerged during the sessions and 35 decisions were taken. Some of these focused on improving safety procedures. Others involved utilising suggestions for improving mining techniques.

In South Africa - nearly a-thousand workers were stuck in a gold mine after the power went out. A storm knocked out power Wednesday night. Union leaders say the incident demonstrates the continuing safety problems in South Africa's mines. They're calling for a thorough safety audit before heading back to work. CGTN's Angelo Coppola has details. Sibanye Stillwater, owners of the mine confirmed that all the miners are healthy and recuperating after their ordeal. The company will also shortly begin trauma counseling.
