Provided by Werksmans Attorneys

The evolving regulatory landscape in the mining industry (including the Mining Charter, as amended, and the Codes of Good Practice for the Mineral Industry) has led to a growing number of administrative disputes over the granting of prospecting and mining rights. In addition, mining companies are subject to increasingly stringent environmental regulation, particularly around waste management and rehabilitation of the surface of the earth disturbed during prospecting and mining. Werksmans mining & resources lawyers come with extensive experience in structuring mining transactions to meet these legislative and regulatory requirements, including the impact of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Royalty Act.

The team has a well-established international network. Mining clients include North American, European and Australian companies, as well as some of the major South African mining houses and empowerment mining companies.

Specialist services we are known for include: Advising on the MPRDA; Mining Charter and Codes of Good Practice; black economic empowerment legislation and regulation; mergers & acquisitions; environmental law (including waste management); mine health and safety; Joint Venture and Pooling and Sharing agreements; mining and prospecting statutory and regulatory compliance; and processing and off-take agreements.
