A picture taken on July 6, 2012 shows an illegal miner displaying diamonds digged out of a disused mine in Komaggas. Three months ago 10 illegal miners died in an avalanche, while looking for gems on a disused mine. Illegal miners in South Africa are ready to risk death to chase a share of the mineral riches that shaped the continent's biggest economy. In sparsely populated Namaqualand, where the famed gem deposits run along the icy Atlantic Ocean to the Namibian border, diamond giant De Beers was once the top employer, but its mines were halted in 2008. The slowdown has emptied out the private mining towns, but has lured growing numbers of diggers from the area's other small settlements into the abandoned fields.
