At its meeting of 21 July 2017 your Council noted concerns expressed by some of its members regarding the Government Gazette No. 40989 that is open for written representations to reach the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) by no later than Friday, 4 August 2017.

Council resolved that this matter does not fall within the ambit of the SAIMM’s objectives and mandate and the SAIMM will therefore not be making any written response to the DMR. However, any of our members who would like to make a written representation are encouraged to do so in their personal capacity.
