Eight dead, one missing in South Africa mine blaze

Eight workers have been found dead deep inside a burning South African gold mine, their union said Thursday, as rescuers raced to find one miner still missing. The bodies were discovered late Wednesday at the mine west of Johannesburg, National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) spokesman Livhuwani Mammburu told AFP. An earth tremor is thought to have triggered the accident at Harmony Gold's Doornkop mine, some 1.7 kilometres (more than a mile) below ground.

South Africa platinum wage talks to resume

Government-brokered talks to end a South African platinum mine strike, now in its second week, will restart Tuesday, as firms report losses totalling as much as $36 million a day. Around 80,000 members of the radical Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) downed tools on January 23 calling for a minium monthly wage of 12,500-rand ($1,100) -- almost double their current pay. Last Thursday they rejected a three-year deal from Anglo American Platinum, Impala Platinum and Lonmin that offered a roughly seven percent annual increase.

South Africa to move ahead with shale gas exploration

South Africa will move ahead "decisively" with the exploration of shale gas, the country's minerals minister said in Cape Town on Tuesday. Minerals Minister Susan Shabangu said that "geology indicates" a potential for 485 trillion cubic feet of shale gas trapped in the formations of South Africa's arid Karoo region. "We will move ahead decisively, yet responsibly with the exploration of shale gas," Shabangu said, adding that the government would "unleash" the potential of shale gas to provide "cost-competitive energy security" and create jobs.

More than 1,000 rhinos poached in South Africa last year - Government

By Ed Stoddard JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - More than 1,000 rhinos were poached for their horns in South Africa in 2013, a record number and an increase of over 50 percent from the previous year, the country's department of environmental affairs said on Friday. Rhino hunting is driven by soaring demand in newly affluent Asian countries such as Vietnam and China, where the animal's horns are prized as a key ingredient in traditional medicine.

South Africa posts trade surplus after data shake up

South Africa posted a rare trade surplus in November, official statistics showed Monday, amid a shakeup in the way the data is calculated. Statistics South Africa said Africa's largest economy reached a 770 million rand ($74 million) surplus last month, the first in almost two years. Following months of crippling auto strikes, the sector bounced back, with exports of vehicles, aircraft and vessels up 34 percent from October.
