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
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
technical services agreements
treatment of residue deposits
