The Chamber of Mines said on Tuesday, that a group of its office bearers met a delegation from the African National Congress (ANC) led by secretary general Gwede Mantashe, at the Chamber’s request, to discuss the impasse of the Reviewed Mining Charter. Last week, the Chamber vehemently rejected the 2017 Reviewed Mining Charter gazetted by the minerals minister Mosebenzi Zwane, saying that the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) had not had meaningful consultation before the introduction of some of the items, and thus it would approach the courts to stop the department from implementing it.
