20 December 2010 A team of experts advising the South African government on acid mine drainage has recommended a series of short-term measures to address the problem. The measures are benchmarked against countries that have experienced similar problems, such as Canada and the United States.They include pumping and neutralisation of acid mine drainage, enforcing compliance, regular inspections, and prevention of ingress as short-term measures to maintain water levels at least below the relevant environmental critical level.The government’s inter-ministerial committee on acid mine drainage said in a statement on Friday that it had received an updated report from the team of experts on Wednesday.The scope of the team’s work included assessing work done to date as well as available solutions and technology, and proposing integrated short-, medium- and long-term solutions.It also included assessing costs viability, as well as exploring possible partnerships with the private sector.The committee said the government has acknowledged and accepts that acid mine drainage is a problem that South Africa needs to address urgently.This, the committee said, should be done in a co-ordinated manner between a range of stakeholders that included the mining industry, with the government always play a leading role.The team’s report advocated for the three priority basins (North, Central and Western) to have implementation plans that included pumping and neutralisation of acid mine drainage, enforcing compliance, regular inspections, and prevention of ingress as short-term measures to maintain water levels at least below the relevant environmental critical level.The committee believed the proposals were founded on scientific research and engineering instead of simplistic, quick-fix solutions.Some areas needing revisiting included the liability of polluters and costing of implementation.The recommendations were benchmarked on some countries that had experienced acid mine drainage problems, such as Canada and the United States.The report would be presented to the Cabinet early in January. The Cabinet would then determine the way forward.Sapa

Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says he wants to see samples of exotic products, such as cassava flour and ackee wine, being manufactured on a wider scale in order to add greater value to the agricultural sector.“What I want now is for the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries to take those samples and turn them into widely available commodities that are on the shelves of, not just Jamaica but the entire (Caribbean) region and the world, because that is how we add value and grow our economy,” he said.The Prime Minister was speaking on the final day of the 66th Denbigh Agricultural and Industrial Show in Clarendon on Monday (August 6).Meanwhile, Mr. Holness urged the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS) to encourage young people, “who have a greater affinity to technology”, to get involved in agriculture.He noted that they should be encouraged to be innovative by applying technology “to create a smarter kind of agriculture that will add more value to our natural resources, thereby increasing the pace and growth of the Jamaican economy”.The Prime Minister noted, however, that while applying technology in agriculture may not necessarily surmount the competitive economies of scale that larger countries have, it could reposition Jamaica to the point where the island’s agriculture is economically viable and sustainable.He contended that agriculture has, for too long, been regarded as a pastime, and emphasised that “now, we have to see agriculture as a business”.Mr. Holness further noted that the sector can contribute to the growth of the country by continually adding value.The Prime Minister, who toured the Denbigh Show ground earlier in the day, also commended the JAS on the successful staging of this year’s agricultural show, which was held from August 4 to 6.
