Minerals Beneficiation Bill on cards, says SA Min

A Minerals Beneficiation Bill is to be tabled in Parliament soon to address beneficiation strategies relating to mineral value addition, says South African Minerals and Energy Minister Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka.

Replying to a question in the National Council of Provinces which asked whether in the light of concerns expressed by the United Diamond Association of South Africa, her department would launch an inquiry into the sustainable development of the local cutting and polishing industry, she said her department would not be launching such an inquiry.

However, she said the Bill to be tabled in Parliament soon would address beneficiation strategies including the development of “a sustainable diamond cutting and polishing industry in South Africa”. - I-Net Bridge
