Stakeholders Collaborate On A New Mining Charter

The Chamber of Mines has commended Minister of Mineral Resources, Gwede Mantashe, on the robust Mining Charter discussions that transpired with key industry stakeholders, over the past weekend.

The Chamber is seeking a practicable and workable outcome that all parties to the Charter can accept and defend, it said in a statement.

The minister has established two technical task teams – one which will focus on the Mining Charter and the other on competitiveness and inclusive growth – to ensure further effective progress on transformation and the sustainability of the industry.

”We are aligned with the Minister’s thinking that transformation, competitiveness and growth are and should be mutually reinforcing goals. We look forward to creative thinking on transformation from all stakeholders which might result in some aspects of a new Charter being approached in ways different from the template of the first two iterations of the Charter that have operated since 2004,” stated the Chamber.

The Chamber of Mines of South Africa is a mining industry employers’ organisation that supports and promotes the South African mining industry. The organisation serves its members and promotes their interests by providing strategic support and advisory input.
