In South Africa and Africa there is a growing demand on mineral resources, resulting in a landscape that is forever expanding and fluctuating. This requires legal expertise which is both proactive and all-encompassing. We have a track record for providing successful outcomes in this sector.

We have been at the forefront of the mining legislation which was introduced to South Africa in 2004. We were one of the first to procure mining and prospecting rights issued in terms of this dispensation for clients in the Northern Cape.

Our experience in this field of law includes:

acquisition sale and cession of mineral rights

applications for mineral rights and their registration

compliance with BEE legislation

contractors’ agreements

creation of incorporated and unincorporated joint ventures

cross border and international transactions

EPCM (engineering, procurement, and construction management) agreements

legal due diligence investigations

marketing and off-take agreements

surface use agreements

technical services agreements

treatment of residue deposits
