In the barren landscape of Joburg's artisanal mining underworld, we explore the shafts and sewers where, slowly but surely, zama zamas are encroaching on the cityโ€™s critical infrastructure. From makeshift bush kitchens to perilous underground tunnels excavated in search of gold, we reveal the harsh reality of their lives. These illegal miners are eking out a living underneath the City of Gold. But at what cost? As environmental decay and armed violence take their toll on Johannesburg, Carte Blanche heads underground and emerges with a disturbing answer.
