The Tshiamiso Trust, which was established to disburse compensation funds to mineworkers who contracted silicosis in South Africa’s gold mining sector, has successfully paid the first group of more than 100 compensation settlements to claimants following earlier pilot payments to test its system.

Compensation amounts have ranged between R25 000 and R250 000, depending on case-specific claims, and, so far, amounted to more than R9-million.
