Implications of NEMA and other Environmental Regulations for the Mining Industry

Thursday 13th September, Country Club Johannesburg, Auckland Park




The mining industry, more than any other industrial sector, is under constant pressure to demonstrate continued commitment to responsible environmental management and to the concept of sustainable development. There are currently several pieces of environmental legislation being updated or coming into force which the industry will be obliged to comply with, such as the NEMA regulations, which includes new legislation around mine rehabilitation, and the Carbon Tax Act.

To find out more, join the Joburg Indaba team on 13th September for an informative and interactive breakfast discussion, where you will receive an update on all the current and proposed legislation, understand the financial implications and what steps you can take now in preparation for compliance.

Government, industry, mining and legal experts will examine the following:

  • Carbon Tax Act: objectives, the financial implications and accurate quantification of emission sources
  • Status update on Section 24P (NEMA); Financial Provision Regulations; NEM Laws Amendment Bill, 2017
  • Mine rehabilitation regulations: financial vehicles and access to the rehabilitation funds
  • Rehabilitation planning through an integrated approach and efficient utilisation of critical data
  • Industry view: how can mines efficiently prepare to comply with these regulations? What are the estimated cost implications and overall impact on the business?

It is vital that mining houses start to prepare now to comply with existing and future legislation and to ensure the protection of directors and managers from possible fines imposed for a breach of environmental regulations.
