Global Mining Review,

On Wednesday 16 January 2019, Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe will engage the Xolobeni community on mining and economic development prospects in the area.

The engagement forms part of the Minister’s continuous engagements with all stakeholders to find a sustainable solution and a way forward to challenges related to potential mining and economic development.

During his last meeting with the Amadiba Crisis Committee (ACC) in November 2018, the ACC requested the Minister to come back and meet with the broader community in Xolobeni.

In December 2018, the Minister further postponed his intended visit to the area to allow stakeholders more time to prepare. 

The Minister will be joined by the Alfred Nzo District Municipality Executive Mayor Cllr S. Mehlomakhulu and the Mbizana Local Municipality Mayor Cllr T.D. Mafumbatha as well as the MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Mr F. D. Xasa.
