South Africa's Mining Industry - Mar 6, 2011 seminar report

with Macleod Dixon LLP and Webber Wentzel Attorneys


Regulatory uncertainty, threats of industrial action and debate on the nationalization of mines are contributing to uncertainty in mining investment in South Africa. Our March 6 seminar during PDAC drew seventy-five delegates to learn firsthand about these issues, the perceptions surrounding them and the reality behind them. Presenters included leading African mining law firm Webber Wentzel and 2010 Who's Who Legal Global Mining Law Firm of the Year Macleod Dixon LLP.
