In the early hours of Sunday morning on 11 June, Gauteng residents were left shaken after a seismic activity that took place about 2.38am.
The Council for Geoscience (CGS) is investigating whether mining activity or fluctuations in groundwater levels caused the earthquake that shook large parts of Gauteng.
We believe there are many factors to consider, such as the local geological fault lines, the magnitude and proximity of the earthquake to mining sites, and the specific mining techniques employed. To arrive at a comprehensive understanding, a multidisciplinary approach involving geologists, seismologists, and mining experts is necessary to draw precise conclusions.
Let us know, did you wake to the experience and what are your suggestions on the best approach to find answers to this matter?
