comBusinessLive reports that the government has backtracked on the immediate implementation of the contentious new Mining Charter, a move welcomed by the Chamber of Mines on Friday.  

The Chamber said in a statement that Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane and his department had given a written undertaking not to implement or apply the provisions of the 2017 reviewed Charter, pending judgment in the urgent interdict application brought by the Chamber.  Based on this undertaking, the Chamber has acceded to the department’s request for extra time to prepare its answering affidavit to the interdict application and for the hearing to take place on a later date.  The hearing was scheduled for 18 July, but the parties have now asked the High Court to allocate a hearing date in September 2017.
