Industry Perspective on Recent Court Rulings:

Led By: Adjunct Professor Mike Solomon 

In the last few weeks we have seen significant court rulings concerning land and mining rights, namely involving the communities in Bakgatla, Mabola and Xolobeni. This week we will be joined by Prof. Mike Solomon, who will talk us through the industry perspective and potential implications of these rulings.

Prof. Solomon has 36 years’ experience as a mining engineer in the gold, platinum, diamond and coal sectors. He sits on the council of the SAIMM and is the chairman of its Mineral Economic Division, amongst numerous previous roles in the mining and minerals sector.

We have attached a link to an article covering the recent Xolobeni ruling: https://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/xolobeni-judgment-is-vital-to-land-debate-20181124

Please join us for some good coffee (come early) and great conversations

An attendance register will be taken for MtM students!
