    ... town, and because of lack of regulation, there are massive mining dumps - large yellowish mountains of sand/dust - on the outskirts of the city. These are not healthy for its inhabitants, as they contain chemicals used to extract the gold. We saw that most of the inner-city inhabitants were black South Africans, who moved in town after the successful election of Nelson Mandela in 1992. When this happened, a lot of large companies moved out of downtown, but ...
