Important Update – XOLOBENI

A few month ago I blogged about the proposed mining of Xolobeni in the Eastern Cape. Here is the most recent development, hopefully the Board will make the right decision:

28 January 2010

The LRC to make oral submissions on behalf of the Amadiba Crisis Committee at Xolobeni

For immediate release

On 8, 9 and 10 February 2010, the Minerals and Mining Development Board will receive oral submissions on behalf of interested parties involved in the appeal against the Minister’s decision to grant a mining right to Transworld Energy Minerals (TEM) at Xolobeni in the Eastern Cape.  The Board will then make recommendations to the Minister of Minerals and Energy.
