Cape Town – Government will not allow itself to be threatened by players in the mining industry who run to the courts if they don’t get their way, the mineral resources ministry said on Monday.

Speaking at a media conference on the sidelines of the 2017 Mining Indaba, Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane and his deputy Godfrey Oliphant were adamant that government has a transformation agenda that needs to be implemented as a matter of urgency and that it cannot be delayed by industry players who are unhappy with among other things the stipulations in the mining charter.
