In Mawetse SA Mining Corporation (Pty) Ltd v Minister of Mineral Resources and Others (3081/12)  ZAGPPHC 11, the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) recently ruled on the calculation of the period for which a prospecting right endures. The SCA held that the duration should be calculated from the date on which the applicant was informed that the right has been granted (upon receipt of the grant letter) and not from the date of the notarial execution of the prospecting right or the date on which the environmental management plan was approved (if that date differed to the date of grant).
