  • Aquila starts legal action against Mineral Resources Minister 2015-09-16
    South African exploration company Aquila Steel has started legal proceedings in the Pretoria High Court against Mineral Resources Minister Ngoako Ramatlhodi to protect its security of tenure. The company was seeking a judicial review of the Minister’s decisions to set aside Aquila’s Avontuur prospecting right, in the Northern Cape, as well as not to award the company a mining right for the Gravenhage manganese project. Since being granted the Avontuur prospecting right in October 2006, Aquila had spent in excess of R150-million progressing Gravenhage, delivering a 112-million-ton manganese ore resource, a 20.2-millition-ton reserve and a completed feasibility study indicating positive development potential.
