The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said on Wednesday that it is deeply concerned by the current consideration by the Minister of Mineral Resources Mosebenzi Zwane to put in place a mineral rights moratorium until the finalisation of the Mining Charter Three court challenge by the Chamber of Miners. NUM said it was of the view that such a moratorium would negatively impact its members through job losses, as there will be no Section 11 approvals taking on change of ownership and new mining or prospecting rights.
