Students at Wits, with the support of Gold Fields, are building capacity to apply mechanised mining methods and technologies in deep-level gold mines.
Mining majors respond to the international requests for information and transparency on their tailings storage facilities.
Business and policy
Gold Fields has been focused on reinvesting with 2019 expected to be the inflection point as new projects start to contribute to the group.
South Africa’s deep level gold mining industry will over the next 10 years almost entirely cease to exist (excluding Gold Fields’ South Deep mine).
Gold Fields is to install a renewable energy micro-grid powered by more than 20 000 solar panels and backed up by a 2 MW /1 MWh battery system.
Gold Fields has reached agreement with the National Union of Mineworkers to officially end the 45-day strike at its South Deep mine in South Africa.
Gold Fields advises that the strike at its South Deep mine by the National Union of Mineworkers continues into its third week
