Framework Agreement For A Sustainable Mining Industry

Mr. Raphela said that the accommodation of minors remains a challenge. While positive progress has been made in improving living and housing conditions in the 15 priority mining towns, the focus would be on mass infrastructure services. Access to the information of minors in Teba`s possession, necessary to identify minors entitled to compensation, was still a challenge. This is because Teba sold the information. Discussions were ongoing. A database on current and former miners would be developed and could be consulted by stakeholders. Regarding transfer pricing, he said SARS and the Chamber of Mines had given presentations to the Technical Task Team.
