Parent and teacher guide

Welcome to the Chamber of Mines' Mining for Schools website.

This site provides comprehensive information and support materials on mining to help give grades 10 to 12 learners a greater knowledge of the mining sector, its history and its contribution to South Africa and our economy.

Gold mining is the first resource to be covered. It will be followed by the other metals and minerals found and mined in South Africa.

The bulk of the information currently resides in the sections beginning here. It is divided up into 20 easily digestible sections which together give a synopsis of South Africa's gold mining industry.

Posters can also be downloaded here and a presentation here.
