Mantashe sees new mining charter by May

Johannesburg, April 10 – South Africa’s Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe Gwede Mantashe said on Tuesday he remained confident that the government and mining firms would finalise the third version of an industry charter that lays out requirements for black ownership levels.

 

Mantashe made the remarks in a speech at a platinum mining conference in Johannesburg.

 

The charter proposed by Mantashe’s predecessor was opposed by the industry, which for years has been grappling with depressed prices and labour unrest.
