30 July 2015 : The A-Z of Prospecting Rights in South Africa

Spatial Dimension is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring a one-day workshop on the A-Z of Prospecting Rights in South Africa.

The course is being arranged by the Professional Meetings Committee of the Geological Society of South Africa and will be taking place at the Johannesburg Country Club, Auckland Park, Johannesburg on 30 July 2015.

The workshop starts at 9am and will end with networking drinks, leading into the early evening Annual General Meeting of the Geological Society of South Africa.

Interested people can register by completing the following registration form.


About the Course

Currently in South Africa and to some extent neighboring countries, exploration activity is somewhat muted, in large part due to the global resources slump we are currently experiencing. But the world is not replacing its minerals reserves adequately, and sooner or later an upturn in exploration activity will occur. As one of the world’s major repositories of mineral wealth, there will no doubt be a refocus on the southern African region.

As part of the proceedings leading into the Annual General Meeting of the GSSA on July 30, a workshop on the current regulatory environment as well as a ‘how-to’ session on the prospecting rights application process in South Africa will be staged at the Auckland Park campus of the Johannesburg Country Club.

The final program will cover:

  • Introduction - Setting the Scene for the Day
  • Rights Management - Legal and Technical Aspects
  • Exploration Finance
  • The Social License - Bringing Communities On Side
  • Environmental Reporting and EIAs
  • The Rights Application Process – How to Go About it
  • The Drilling Environment - Safety, Health and Environment
  • Exploration Philosophies
