South Africa’s errant Mineral Resources Minister has agreed to suspend the implementation of the absurd and impractical third iteration of the Mining Charter until after the High Court has pronounced judgement on what the legal fraternity has condemned as unconstitutional, contrary to the Companies Act and a taunting of the World Trade Organisation. Mining Weekly Online can report that the Chamber of Mines on Friday extracted a written undertaking from Minister Mosebenzi Zwane that neither he nor his rogue Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) would apply the provisions of Mining Charter Three “in any way”, pending judgment in the chamber’s urgent interdict application.
