Mining and Petrol Rehabilitation


When any company applies for mining rights, it is now required, by law, to rehabilitate the area once the mining/prospecting operations have closed.

The Department of Minerals and Resources (DMR) requires that each mine/prospector makes financial provision for such rehabilitation before the mine begins operation (see s39(4) of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act, 2002).  Such financial provision will be set out in the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) and consists of an initial upfront guarantee and ongoing financial provision.  Financial provision can only be in the name of a Company, Trust or CC.

The Department of Minerals and Energy (DME) requires that owners of petroleum pipelines, petroleum storage facilities and petroleum loading facilities must comply with the following acts:

Petroleum Product Act, 1977  (DOE)

Petroleum Pipeline Act, 2003  (NERSA)

We offer a solution for proof of financial provision.  In order to assist and speed up the process we will require the following documents respectively for each section.
