[South Africa’s] mining sector has reached a crossroads and requires some major decisions, including much needed buy-in from all stakeholders. Without it I’m certain the medium to long-term impacts of bad decisions and messy legislation will leave the industry in shadow.
As I look back over the 2016 year, I have come to realise what an industry-changing year it has been and predictions that the past 12 months would be filled with great trial and tribulations were correct.
Perhaps it is time for South Africa to take a leaf out of Africa’s book – at least acknowledging the power of the mining industry and how critical it is to ensure legislation that encourages investment and industry growth.
