The High Court of Gauteng, in Pretoria, on Friday made an agreement reached between the Chamber of Mines (CoM) and the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) that Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane would withdraw his proposed moratorium on the processing of new mining rights, an order of the court. The DMR withdrew plans to impose a moratorium on granting and renewing mining rights and will explore other measures to ensure companies are compliant with the industry charter.
