West Wits Mining (WWI) has advised that the Minister assessing the mining right application for the Witwatersrand Basin Project in South Africa has received all extra information.

Last week, the Minister requested further information from the Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries (DEFF) regarding the potential effect of the project on water infrastructure.

The company has now been informed by DEFF that it submitted all the information to the Minister on Wednesday, March 24, 2021.

West Wits Chairman Michael Quinert said the company has stressed the urgency of having the appeals finalised.

“The advice received indicates that this matter is now receiving urgent attention at the Ministerial level. Having reviewed the recommendations on 16 March and requested further detail on one discreet issue it is apparent that all relevant material is now before the decision maker.”

“It is therefore reasonable to expect there should be no further undue delays and a decision will be made in a matter of days. Failing that, the company is ready to initiate formal legal proceedings to compel the decision.”

Shares last traded at 7.9 cents.
