Tabacks advises leading organisations in the Mining, Oil & Gas sectors
As one of the leading firms in mining legal expertise, Tabacks has seen the industry come a long way since the implementation of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act, 28 of 2002 ("MPRDA").
South Africa is famous for its abundance of mineral resources, accounting for a significant proportion of world production and reserves, and South African mining companies are key players in the global industry.
The changing nature of mining regulation from a common–law base to a largely legislated system subject to both constitutional and administrative law principles has brought with it new challenges for businesses operating in this sector, and it is vitally important not only to understand the law but to implement all transactions accordingly.
