A hardscrabble patch of South Africa disputed between black farmers and tribal leaders working with platinum mining interests is legal ground zero in a battle to loosen the chiefs' grip on communal lands.

Technologies used to carve subways and clear landmines are being retooled to mechanise South Africa's platinum mines, where an unforgiving geology has stymied such efforts at a huge cost. The technologies may make new mines profitable and could provide a lifeline for some loss-making shafts in a sector battered by low prices and social unrest, but there are limits.

The restive region in the country's northeast has been a flashpoint of violence rooted in community grievances over jobs, revenue flows and conflict between rival unions that threatens production in the world's top producer of the precious metal.
