Mining activities in South Africa are governed by three interlocking Acts. These are the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act (28 of 2002) (the MPRDA), the National Environmental Management Act (107 of 1998) (NEMA) and the National Water Act (36 of 1998) (NWA) and their regulations. These prescribe statutory duties in respect of, inter alia, environmental standards, the mitigation of environmental impacts and rehabilitation of the affected environment. Criminal and civil liability is also created under all three acts.
