Unpacking Key Legislation

Land Reform & Mining in South Africa
Wednesday 24 November 2021 | 9:00am 

Land reform and mining continues to evolve and dominate as headline topical issues in South Africa. Courts have certainly been catching up in their land distribution rulings with some landmark matters, but we await the long debated passing or not, of the Land Expropriation Bill. We have seen developments recently relating to ownership in the Mining sector as well where the High Court ruled that the Mining Charter is a policy guideline and not subordinate legislation; meaning non-compliance with the charter cannot be used to revoke a mining right.

Furthermore, another key change on the cards for these sectors involves the Minister of Forestry, Fisheries and Environment, who has published her intention to repeal the 2015 Financial Provisioning Regulations and to make new Regulations for Financial Provisioning for the Mitigation and Rehabilitation of Environmental Damage Caused by Reconnaissance, Prospecting, Exploration, Mining or Production Operations.

With much change on the cards in South Africa’s key industries, we await in anticipation to see its unfolding. Please join us for an interesting webinar discussion as we unpack key legislation and current policy in the Mining and Land Reform sectors.
