Africa is well endowed with mineral resources. It harbours the world’s largest mineral reserves of platinum, gold, diamonds, chromite, manganese, and vanadium.

Mining in Africa is an integral and important part of the continent’s economy. Many mining projects suffer extreme risks and difficult decisions and sound mining law is integral for an investment decision. This practice group will help you gain a better understanding of what makes up the various laws in each African jurisdiction. The basic essence of mining law in most African countries is similar, being a state licencing system, but each country has its own local laws, customs, practices and guidelines.

This Mining Practice group is headed up by Chris Stevens and members have a full understanding of mining law in their respective countries. There is no doubt that we will assist you in gaining a better understanding of the various applicable mining regimes operative across the continent.

Our member firms can assist you with all your Mining Law requirements in Africa.
