Anglo being sued for R20m [So. Africa]

Former gold miners suffering from [silicosis] want their former employers to compensate them for pain and suffering. [A] case was brought by 10 former miners against the Anglo American Corporation in the Johannesburg High Court...No date has yet been set for the trial....The miners charge that [Anglo American] knew that levels of silica underground were often at such high levels that they posed a material risk to miners, and that preventive measures and required standards were consistently ignored, flouted or denied....Anglo American would not comment on the matter. [also refers to the Cape / Gencor lawsuits]
