Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane (MP) has noted the actions taken by the Chamber of Mines in applying for an urgent interdict on the 2017 Mining Charter.

“It is our view that those who support this Mining Charter support our quest for transformation, and those who are in opposition to the Charter are in fact opposing the transformation objectives of Government, and we stand ready to defend the interests of South Africans in this regard,” Minister Zwane said.

“As with any legislation that is developed, it is virtually impossible to please all parties. It is unfortunate that the Chamber of Mines has chosen to take this route, but their decision is respected, and the democracy we fought for allows all of us to exercise our rights in this manner. We have confidence in the courts' ability to act with diligence on this matter,” the Minister concluded.
