Mining Charter should be withdrawn – Frans Baleni

In the spirit of meaningful dialogue, the Mining Charter should be withdrawn and all key stakeholders must have a serious dialogue about the future of a sustainable mining industry in South Africa, Mining Indaba advisory board member and former leading mining trade unionist Frans Baleni said on Wednesday. Speaking on day three of the Investing in African Mining Indaba, Baleni said such dialogue should be characterised by mutual commitment, which should not be compromised.
