Chamber of Mines seeks interdict against new Mining Charter


The Chamber said it was opposed to the DMR’s Mining Charter as it “attempts to subvert those objectives by the unlawful publication of instruments which purport to give effect to such objectives but in fact undermine them. 

It further noted that should the DMR’s Charter be implemented in its current form, it will “destroy the very industry whose survival is necessary to give effect to the objects of the MPRDA.” The targets include new mining rights holders having 30% black ownership to be shared among employees, communities and black entrepreneurs. Those applying for prospecting rights would be required to have a "minimum of 50% plus one black person shareholding." – IOL News, 26 June 2017.Intelligence transfer centre has aptly designed the 8th Annual Mineral Resources Compliance and Reporting Conference , which will be held on the 23rd & 24th August 2017 at Indaba Hotel, Fourways Johannesburg.The conference will serve as a platform to assist industry and stakeholders with tools to ensure compliance with the charter, as well as look into possible solutions towards challenges which are created by the charter.Key significant issues which will be placed focus a legal analysis on the Mining Charter Amendments, looking at measures to consider aligning yourself with the new proposed Mining Charter and making sense of compliance complexities.In addition to the above, two informative workshops will take place.
