Escalating resistance to mine nationalisation

- 01 July 2011

Peter Leon, a partner at Webber Wentzel, was quoted extensively in an article in Mining Weekly which looked at how resistance to the nationalization of South Africa’s mining industry is escalating with increasing audibility.

The article highlighted Leon’s recent warning that the R52-billion wiped off the JSE in 72 hours after the Mining Charter was leaked in 2002 would look like a “storm in a teacup” compared with the impact of the adoption of a full-blown nationalisation policy.
