South African Banks Investment in the Mining Sector in SADC

November 15th, 2015

There is expectation that banks undertake due diligence on their potential clients before they can fund them to support social and environmental accountability. Mining activities, if not properly managed can destroy the environment, illegally displace people; pollute air, soil, and water, as well as become the source of illicit financial flows.

Artisanal Mining in the middle of a city: The Kasulo story in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Kasulo is a township in the District of Kolwezi in the resource rich Katanga Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Kolwezi is home to the DRC’s biggest copper mining investment—the Chinese Sicomine, Suisse Glencore and the new mines company -- Africa Minerals (Nationalite). All three have some of the biggest copper and cobalt reserves in the world. The population of Kasulo was moved here   by government from other areas to give way to mining activities. Kasulo had never known mining activities until March 2014 when people discovered copper under their feet and houses.
