South Africa is renowned for being a mineral treasure trove with an abundance of resources. It owns and produces a significant proportion of the world’s minerals: nearly 90 per cent of platinum metals, 80 per cent of manganese, 73 per cent of chrome, 45 per cent of vanadium and 41 per cent of gold are located in South Africa. A substantial variety of other minerals are extracted, including iron ore, copper, nickel, diamonds, coal, building materials and other non-metallic metals.
South Africa’s wealth has been built on its vast resources and mining as an industry is therefore crucial. Based on 2011 statistics, while gold export earnings have declined, contributing only 5.7 per cent to South Africa’s GDP, precious metals account for 65 per cent of the country’s mineral export earnings and 30 per cent of total goods exports. The mining industry contributed 5.2 per cent to South Africa’s GDP in 2011.
The mining industry is also South Africa’s biggest employer, with over 510,000 employees and another 400,000 employed by suppliers of goods and services to the industry. South Africa’s mining industry is probably the world’s most highly developed. With a strong background as a major mining country, its strengths include high levels of technical and production expertise, as well as comprehensive research and development activities.
The country has some of the most highly developed primary processing facilities worldwide, covering the carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminium industries, in addition to gold and platinum. It is also a world leader of new technologies.
The discovery of the first diamond on the banks of the Orange River in 1867 was the spark that ignited the explosion of mining in South Africa. By 1886, gold and diamond rushes were quickly turning mining in South Africa into the nation’s staple economy. The South African mining industry was characterised by a sudden influx of fortune seekers; which resulted in harsh and unkind living conditions. These pioneers, while developing early South African infrastructure, were creating the basis for massive future wealth creation through mining in South Africa.
The potential for mining in South Africa, including the discovery of the world’s largest gold deposits in Witwatersrand, triggered what is now called the South African War, or Anglo-Boer War, which led to the annexation of South Africa under the British Empire from 1910 to 1961. During this time, the techniques for mining in South Africa improved: Having living canaries for gas-detectors and other dangerous labour practices became obsolete as mining in South Africa advanced to include sophisticated ventilation and, eventually, chemical extraction of minerals from low-grade ore. The growth of mining in South Africa led to a high demand for industrial support and, as a result, it shaped the South African economy and turned it into a mining country.
As a major business player in South Africa, we aim to make a real and lasting contribution to the development of the country and its people. Our employees remain our most valuable asset.

The Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act, No 28 of 2002 (MPRDA), governing mineral legislation in South Africa, came into effect on
1 May 2004. The MPRDA, with its associated broad-based socio-economic empowerment charter for the mining industry and its attendant scorecard, as revised and amended from time to time, has played a significant role in the transformation of the South African mining industry. The Act effectively transferred ownership of privately held mineral rights to the State to enable any third party to apply to the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) for new-order prospecting rights or mining rights over these previously privately held mineral rights. Implats continues to embrace the principles of transformation as a strategic imperative to reinforce its position as a leading southern African mining company, making the best possible use of available mineral resources.

In June 2013, the MPRDA Amendment Bill (B15-2013) was introduced into Parliament by the Minister of Mineral Resources, following the receipt of public comments made to the draft Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Bill, 2012, that was published in December 2012. Implats noted with concern certain far-reaching amendments contained in the proposed draft Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Bill, 2012, and submitted written representations to the DMR as part of the public representations. However, most of these concerns have not been addressed in the MPRDA Amendment Bill (B15-2013) which was subsequently introduced to Parliament in June 2013. Implats will continue to raise these matters in the parliamentary processes available before the Bill is enacted as an act. Implats also supports the concerns that are being raised through the Chamber of Mines in respect of the MPRDA Amendment Bill (B15-2013).
We currently possess BBB-EE Level 3 Contributor and are intending to achieve Level 1 in one year.
We understand the nature of the African market and have made equality a large part of our business priority. Mkhize Mining Investments puts the people who have been disadvantaged by disparities of the past first.
Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) means the economic empowerment of all black (African, Coloured and Indian) South Africans.
As a strong focus on empowerment and believes that the commitment to transformation runs deeper than simply meeting scorecard objectives.
Mkhize Minging Investment measures its BEE contribution and progress at Group level. We proudly support and contribute to these efforts.
South Africa’s policy of black economic empowerment (BEE) is not simply a moral initiative to redress the wrongs of the past. It is a pragmatic growth strategy that aims to realise the country’s full economic potential while helping to bring the black majority into the economic mainstream.
In the decades before South Africa achieved democracy in 1994, the apartheid government systematically excluded African, Indian and coloured people from meaningful participation in the country’s economy.
“Our country requires an economy that can meet the needs of all our economic citizens – our people and their enterprises – in a sustainable manner,” the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) says in its BEE strategy document.
“This will only be possible if our economy builds on the full potential of all persons and communities across the length and breadth of this country.”
Despite the many economic gains made in the country since 1994, the racial divide between rich and poor remains. As the DTI points out, such inequalities can have a profound effect on political stability:
“Societies characterised by entrenched gender inequality or racially or ethnically defined wealth disparities are not likely to be socially and politically stable, particularly as economic growth can easily exacerbate these inequalities.”
Black economic empowerment – or broad-based black economic empowerment, as it is technically known – is not affirmative action, although employment equity forms part of it. Nor does it aim to take wealth from one group and give it to another. It is essentially a growth strategy, targeting the South African economy’s weakest point: inequality.
“No economy can grow by excluding any part of its people, and an economy that is not growing cannot integrate all of its citizens in a meaningful way,” the DTI says.
“As such, this strategy stresses a BEE process that is associated with growth, development and enterprise development, and not merely the redistribution of existing wealth.”
Black economic empowerment is an important policy instrument aimed at broadening the economic base of the country – and through this, at stimulating further economic growth and creating employment.
A share certificate is a written document signed on behalf of a corporation, and serves as legal proof of ownership of the number of shares indicated.
Also referred to as a “stock certificate”.
In modern financial markets, individual investors rarely take physical possession of their share certificates. “Scripophily” is a term that signifies the collecting of share certificates and other forms of paper based financial securities. Similar to stamp collecting or bank note collecting, a share certificate’s value is dependent on its condition and age.
Every Company must have a Company Register and minute book. The Register is like the ID book of the company containing all the relevant information of the directors and shareholder and minutes of meetings etc. The company register which we sell have perforated blank pages so that the minutes of each meeting, which are typed on separate pages, can be pasted into the book without the book getting too large. The company register must be held at the registered address.
Important Points regarding Share Certificates:
*It is the director’s responsibility to issue the share certificates.
*The signed share certificate becomes the original certificate.
*It is fraudulent to have duplicated signed share certificates.
*The public can have access to view the share register for a set price & directors have 14 days to respond
