Three Decades of Silicosis: Disease Trends at

Our results show that the overall proportion of gold miners with silicosis at autopsy is currently high at 0.32 for black miners and 0.22 for white miners (2007 data). In the late 1990s, two groups reported similarly high prevalences in two cross-sectional studies of living black ex-miners, ranging from 22% to 36%, depending on the X-ray reader ( Trapido et al. 1998 ; Steen et al. 1997 ).

In addition, mining of a particular material may generate other dusts. The best single example of this is gold mining, where miners' lesions are due to inhalation not of gold but of quartz (silica) from the rock in which the gold is embedded

Understanding small-scale gold mining practices:

Small-scale gold extraction entails several steps depending on the type of deposit (primary, where gold is embedded in quartzite rocks; or secondary, where gold has washed away and been deposited along watercourses) and the use of specific tools, from simpler ones (such as a gold pan) to more mechanized ones (pumps, grinding mills, and excavators) (Cleary, 1990, Hinton et al., 2003, Seccatore
