Johannesburg - The Hawks visited two offices of the mineral resources department on Wednesday, the department said.

"The department is fully co-operating with the Hawks and will provide all the assistance required by them to undertake their duties," spokesperson Zingaphi Jakuja said in a statement.

She confirmed that the head office in Pretoria and the regional office in Kimberley had been visited.

Hawks spokesperson Colonel McIntosh Polela could not comment on the matter as he was awaiting a report.

    This is really something that is long overdue. They should pay visits to the North West and Limpopo regional offices too. I have had first hand experiences of dodgy dealings with these two offices over many years, both as someone involved in the mining industry, as well as in my voluntary work for environmental NGOs.
