The joint Japanese-German Underground Acoustic Emission Research in South Africa (JAGUARS) project measures seismic events with frequencies 0.7 kHz < f < 200 kHz in Mponeng gold mine, Carletonville, Republic of South Africa. The network has registered many seismic events, which have strong power in the high frequency range f > 25 kHz (Nakatani et al. 2008), resulting in significantly enhanced detection of microseismicity (Yabe et al. 2009). From June 2007 to June 2008 nearly 500,000 events were recorded, including more than 57,000 events with frequency content f > 25 kHz.
