Xolobeni – mining in East Cape

Various discussions took place on the Xolobeni mining process and Mantashe’s visit.
::::
1. It is important to record that Minister Mantashe’s proposed ‘independent’ survey is not in line with the judgment in favour of the Xolobeni community. Not even close.

2. The Xolobeni order provides that the “full and informed consent” of the Applicants (the 68 households in the proposed mining area) AND the Umgungundlovu community must be obtained before a mining right can be granted.

Statement by the Department of Mineral Resources, , following our meeting in with community members

***
There are so many other potential mining projects, makes you wonder who stands to benefit just so much from this one that they’ll continue pushing these so-called consultations even after losing in court.
