Illegal mining is becoming an increasing issue and risk to the sustainability of the mining industry in South Africa. Illegal mining is on the rise in South Africa and presents challenges that need to be addressed from a range of perspectives. The Chamber of Mines of South Africa reports that illegal mining activity within the mineral shelf of South Africa is on the rise. It takes place at abandoned mines and at operating mines with illegal miners often operating under dangerous conditions. Illegal mining costs South Africa’s economy around R21 billion annually. Illegal gold mining has plagued South Africa’s mining companies for decades, robbing the industry and state coffers of billions of rand. There are reportedly thousands of Zama Zama’s working on the surface and underground. Illegal mining is often organised and conducted by crime syndicates. Therefore, the aim of this conference is to find solution to curb the illegal miner, who operate underground and surface, stealing gold, diamond, cable and coal ore. The conference will help using technology and the combination of law enforcement and security personnel to curb the illegal miners in Southern Africa and beyond.
