Now Sibanye will wind down Driefontein’s operations within 10 years, with plans to cut thousands of jobs as it shuts unprofitable shafts. South Africa’s gold industry employs just over 100,000 people, less than a fifth of the number that used to drive the apartheid economy.

Gold was one of the first storehouses of value, and is an important mined commodity.
