n Stellenbosch Law Review = Stellenbosch Regstydskrif - Mineral Law Principles and Policies in Perspective, Hanri Mostert : book review

Volume 24, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1016-4359
  • E-ISSN: 1996-2193



With the publication of this monograph, Hanri Mostert contributed significantly to the relatively limited collection of legal manuscripts that deals with Mineral Law in South Africa. It is unique in its kind in the sense that this is not a practitioner's manual or a section-by-section analysis of the relevant legislation. It is an academic work of quality through which the principles and policies that underpinned preceding mineral law regimes are juxtaposed with the regime introduced by the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act 28 of 2002. That this book will not gather dust on library shelves is apparent from the fact that it was extensively referred to by the Supreme Court of Appeal in the decision given in 2012 5 SA 1 (SCA), even before its official publication.
