[PDF] Precious Metal: The impact of Anglo Platinum on poor communities in Limpopo, South Africa

Remote rural communities have lost their farm land and access to clean water in South Africa as a result of mining by Anglo Platinum, the world’s largest platinum company, which made profits of US$1.75 billion in 2007 alone. A new ActionAid report estimates thousands of poor people in four villages in the Bushveld mineral complex in Limpopo province have lost farm land and received little compensation in a series of relocation deals with Anglo Platinum...ActionAid is calling on the South African Parliament to reject proposed amendments to the mining act that would substantially weaken environmental and social safeguards.
