SA Approves Mining Right For Orion, Paving Way For R4Bn Copper-Zinc Cape Project

The department of mineral resources and energy said on Thursday it had approved a mining right for Orion Minerals, paving the way for the development of a R4 billion copper-zinc project in the Northern Cape. 

It quoted minister Gwede Mantashe as telling delegates at the Australia Down Under conference in Perth that development reaffirmed South Africa's appeal as an investment destination for mining due to regulatory and policy certainty.
