The Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) on Thursday said Minister Mosebenzi Zwane had not yet taken any decision to implement a moratorium on the processing of mining or prospecting right applications. This follows after the Chamber of Mines (CoM) reported that the DMR head office had instructed all DMR regional offices to stop processing any Section 11 new mining right or prospecting right applications submitted after July 19.
