Notice Title: Exploration Strategy of South Africa: Exploration Strategy for the Mining Industry of South Africa and the Exploration Strategy of South Africa: South Africa’s Exploration Implementation Plan 2022
Government Notice: GN 2026 and GN 2027 in GG 46246 on 14 April 2022
Commencing date: 14 April 2022
The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy published the Exploration Strategy of South Africa: Exploration Strategy for the Mining Industry of South Africa (“the Exploration Strategy”) as well as the Exploration Implementation Plan for 2022.
The mineral endowment that South Africa still has is a major driving force to the conceptualisation of this Exploration Strategy for the Mining Industry in South Africa. The Exploration Strategy is designed to take South Africa on that path to bring back its shine in line with the green economy through the deployment of clean technologies.
The Department’s vision with the Exploration Strategy is to unveil South Africa’s mineral resources potential for a sustainable mining industry that responds to the needs of South Africa and the world.
The goal is to attract mineral exploration investment, reignite mineral development, accelerate new mineral discoveries and encourage optimal utilisation of the South African mineral resources in line with the environmental, social, and corporate governance principles for sustainable growth and propel South Africa to a competitive position against other jurisdictions of comparable mineral endowment.
