Death in Goldmine UPSC NOTE


  • At least 31 people, suspected to be illegal miners, died in an abandoned South African gold mine.

  • The deaths occurred in the ventilation shaft of an abandoned site in the town of Welkom, 260 kilometers from Johannesburg.

  • The victims are believed to be illegal miners from neighboring Lesotho.

  • Reports suggest that some bodies have been retrieved, but 28 are still underground.

  • The cause of the deaths remains unknown, and a search team has not been dispatched due to safety concerns related to high methane levels.

  • The incident was only announced by the government after being alerted by Lesotho's foreign ministry.

  • The mine was previously owned by Harmony Gold Mining Company and ceased operations in the 1990s.

  • unregistered miners known as "Zama zamas,", often work in obsolete mines under challenging and perilous conditions.
