NGO Lays Criminal Charges Against Platmin

An environmental NGO, Federation for a Sustainable Environment, has laid criminal charges against mining group Platmin, a company operating an open cast mine on the doorstep of the Pilanesberg Nature Reserve.

Federation for a Sustainable Environment director, Mariette Liefferink, says they have brought charges because the mine does not have a water licence.

The mine is situated in a proposed heritage park that would link the Pilanesberg and the Madikwe nature reserves with each other and create a 90-kilometre long migration route for the Big Five.
