• Inside a South African gold mine

    Friday marks a year since 34 miners were shot dead by police in the South African town of Marikana in a dispute over wages. Mine unions say there has been little improvement since then. South Africa's economy has long been driven by mining but production has dropped over the decades.

    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.

Using water cannons and chemical treatements, a single mine can hope to extract about 3 grams in every tonne. It may not sound like much but if there is 140 million tonnes of waste lying around - the numbers start adding up. High prices means all the effort that goes into sourcing the precious metal may well be worth it. Al Jazeera's Tania Page reports from Johannesburg.

    South Africa's mining industry and its labour issues has been thrust into the world spotlight ever since the Marikana Massacre in 2012.

(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.

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

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.

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.

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."
