Cape Town - It will be interesting to see whether it is possible to develop a sustainable basis for engagement between the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) Inspectorate and mining companies at large, according to Kenneth Coster, a partner in the mining sector group at Webber Wentzel.

This is in light of criticism of the inspectorate that was recently expressed by the courts regarding, what can effectively be deemed to be, abuse of power by the DMR, explained Coster.  

"Whether it is possible to rebuild trust between the DMR and mining companies to the advantage of both sides and the industry at large, remains to be seen," he said.
