This note assesses the right to mine in a ‘protected environment’ in South Africa within the prescripts of s 48 of the National Environmental Management: Protected Areas Act 57 of 2003 (NEMPAA). This issue will be evaluated through a critical analysis of the High Court decision in Mining and Environmental Justice Community Network of South Africa v Minister of Environmental Affairs (hereafter, MEJCON).
