what is new in kalahari


HOTAZEL, Northern Cape (miningweekly.com) – The first blast took place on Tuesday at the new R1.5-billion Kudumane manganese mining project near Hotazel in the Northern Cape. Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu conducted the official opening of what is the fourth new black-controlled manganese mining development under way in South Africa's well-endowed Kalahari. Shabangu urged that steps be taken now to ensure that the economic legacy of the Kalahari manganese fields turns out much better than the disappointing legacy that has been left in the wake of the mined-out diamond fields of Kimberley, developed in the same province more than 100 years ago. She said that development of the area provided the chance to extend economic freedom to South Africans through the many spinoffs that mining and beneficiation spawns. Surface preparation and civil engineering work are being advanced at the site, which is being developed jointly by two black economically empowered (BEE) companies, Northern Cape Manganese Company and Dirleton Minerals & Energy.

Africa, one continent, many worlds

word simply means "travel" in Swahili, but for many, it alludes to wonders first envisioned in childhood: sweeping savannas, big snarling cats, thundering herds of elephant and wildebeest. Like its meaning, the word roams the imagination, becoming other words and places, like serengeti, sahara, or Kilimanjaro. Safari crosses the landscape of the mind, until it finally merges with the name of the great continent itself, Africa.
Geographia invites our readers to explore all the traditional African safari destinations, but the game parks and wildlife reserves are only the beginning of the adventure. The second largest continent on Earth, Africa contains more countries than any other. With a history of human habitation that begins with the oldest known ancestors of man, the continent's cultural wealth easily matches its natural attractions. Empires rose and fell in Africa thousands of years before the European powers began their protracted exploitation of the continent, and much pre-colonial culture remains intact.
