NEMA approval received
Resource Generation Limited has received approval under the
National Environmental Management Act (NEMA) for construction
activities at its Boikarabelo mine. The approval enables the
company to construct the mine, all the required mine
infrastructure and the associated 36 kilometre rail link to
the existing rail network.
This environmental authorisation was given by the Limpopo
Department of Economic
Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET).
Paul Jury, managing director, said: 'We are very pleased to
receive our development consent, which is the culmination of
15 months' close liaison and work with LEDET. As a life of
mine approval, it clears a major milestone to ensure the long
term value that the Boikarabelo mine can provide to all
stakeholders and the local community.
Once we have received our Integrated Water Use Licence and
signed a contract with Transnet Freight Rail, we will then be
able to proceed to finalise funding for project construction
