Who we are

The mining industry working group on Occupational Lung Disease (OLD) was established in 2014. Initially representing five companies and now extended to six (African Rainbow Minerals, Anglo American, AngloGold Ashanti, Gold Fields, Harmony and Sibanye-Stillwater), we are focussing on issues relating to compensation and medical care for occupational lung disease (OLD) in the gold mining industry in South Africa.

Our goal is to engage all stakeholders in order to work together to design and implement a comprehensive solution that is both fair to past, present and future gold mining employees, and also sustainable for the sector.
