Gold Fields is a South African based mining company headquartered in Johannesburg. The company owns two mines in Ghana, four in South Africa, two in Australia, and one in Peru. Gold Fields is listed on both the Johannesburg and in New York stock markets. The company is accused of knowingly exposing its mineworkers to high concentrations of silicon dioxides without taking proper safety measures. In December 2012, a South African lawyer filed a class-action suit on behalf of 17,000 ex-mineworkers who claim they contracted Silicosis, a serious lung disease, from working in the mines. The companies involved in this case include African Rainbow Minerals, AngloGold Ashanti, Gold Fields, and Harmony Gold.
