    A Century Of Miners ’ Phthisis On The South African Gold

    Oct 28, 2013 Introduction. Africa is on the verge of an unprecedented mining boom. This boom is attracting tens of billions of dollars in foreign investment (Janneh Ping 2011 Zhang 2011) and will result in substantial economic growth and development, but it also carries big risks for African societies and the environment.Here we highlight potential environmental threats posed by the rapid escalation of.

    Jan 26, 2021 Exploratory modelling of the impact of gold mining on groundwater in a strategic water area of South Africa was undertaken. A systems dynamics (SD) model was developed to simulate the impact of gold mining on water quality, focusing on groundwater contamination risk, within the context of competing developmental priorities around water resource development and the socio-economic.

    Since its inception in 1886, high rates of occupational lung disease, particularly “miners’ phthisis” (silicosis and or pulmonary tuberculosis) and accompanying racial disparities have been a feature of the South African gold mining industry. While mortality from silicosis and pulmonary tuberculosis fell among white miners during the first half of the 20th century, there was scanty.

    Apr 12, 2018 Gold mines in South Africa have historically been implicated in initiating the tuberculosis (TB) epidemic in South Africa. As Packard notes, “The immense size of the mine labor force, over 200,000 on the Rand alone by 1910, together with the appalling health conditions that existed on the mines, ensured that they would play a central role in the early development of TB in southern Africa” [].
