GET THE DATA

Data sourcing, analysis and reporting are some of the tools Oxpeckers uses to track and expose eco-offences across international borders. Complex investigative stories are aided visually by using data-based infographics, animated maps and data visualisation, to augment more traditional story packages.

Oxpeckers is developing a comprehensive database of eco-offences as a result of our investigations. We share these data sets with our users, where possible, to promote transparency and environmental sustainability.

• Here is the 2015 national data set of operating mines, quarries and mineral processing plants in South Africa:

• Here is the dataset of mine closure certificates and financial provisions for rehabilitation across South Africa. This data was used in our investigation titled “Coal mines leave a legacy of ruin

• Here is the dataset on mine closures in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape used in the investigation “Mine closures: What’s happening in your back yard?

• This is a complete dataset of mine closure certificates and financial provisions for rehabilitation in Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West and Northern Cape’s Kimberly region:
