Public Notice on mining NOT Gazetted

The extraordinary “public notice” on nationalisation of the mining industry, published in the press on April 5 by the Indigenisation Minister, has not been gazetted. A notice has no claim to legal standing unless gazetted. Even if the notice had been gazetted it would have been surprising if it got past the Parliamentary Legal Committee as it has been generally condemned as legally unsound not only by the Prime Minister but also by legal commentators.
