The Chamber of Mines has noted the judgment handed down on 14 November 2017 by the High Court in terms of which two parties, CALS and LHR (acting on behalf of certain mining community organisations) have been granted leave to become co-applicants in the Chamber of Mines’ application for a review of the DMR’s reviewed Mining Charter published on 15 June 2017.

The court further ordered all parties to strictly adhere to the timelines previously laid down by the Deputy Judge President of the Gauteng High Court for the serving and filing of pleadings and heads of argument.

The Chamber respects the outcome of the 14 November proceedings and will now shift its focus to studying the Minister’s answering affidavit which was served and filed on Friday, 10 November 2017 and preparing its replying affidavit which was filed and served on 22 November 2017.

The dates for the hearing of the Chamber’s review application by a full bench of the High Court remain 13 and 14 December 2017.
