The National Union of
Mineworkers has welcomed the release of the Mining Charter Assessment report.
NUM said in a statement that
it is concerned about transformation in the mining industry, and the failure by
the industry to reach the Mining Charter targets.
Mineral Resources Minister
Advocate Ngoako Ramatlhodi said the Department will further strengthen the
efficacy of the Mining Charter through a review process to accelerate the
transformation imperative in the mining sector and create a conducive
environment for the sustainable growth of the sector.
NUM Head of Transformation

with the element of ownership, in terms of ensuring that ownership goes to
previously disadvantage South Africans, especially the three elements which
speaks to meaningful empowerment, in terms of the Mining Charter.
