SA Chamber of Mines seeks urgent meeting to resolve Mining Charter


South Africa’s chamber of mines wants to meet with South African Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, to try and break an impasse over a charter unveiled last year which mining companies believe will hurt the sector, a senior official said on Tuesday.

The industry has clashed with Mosebenzi Zwane, South African Mineral Resources Minister accusing him of negotiating in bad faith after he unveiled the charter last year, slammed by critics as poorly drafted and hard to implement.

“We have written to him, we have indicated that as soon as his diary permits, that we want to start engaging with him,” says Mxolisi Mgojo, South African Chamber of Mines President.

“To his own admission, he himself before the December conference articulated that it is going to be imperative to get the mining industry back on its feet because it is the flywheel of the economy,” says Mgojo.
