Abstract:One of the most important African episodes in the process of intra-continental labour mobilization was concerned with the importation of Chinese identured mine labourers for work on the Transvaal gold fields after the South African War of 1899-1902. For a major part of the recruiting period (1904-1906) the overall control of the recruiting and shipping sides of this indentured labour experiment was controlled by one company, the Chamber of Mines Labour Importation Agency (CMLIA). The article analyses the activities and functions of this company. Notes.
