Mra Accused Of Steamrolling Sand Mining Approval Pngi
Apr 14, 2021 THE Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism is in the process of crafting new regulations for sand and gravel mining following a national outcry about how sand and gravel extraction activities are being done. This was announced by environment minister Pohamba Shifeta in parliament last Thursday.
Silica sand, construction sand, lime sand, industrial diamonds, gemstones and gypsum are not considered to be mineral sands ores. Mineral sands mining and processing can involve a range of activities, beginning with clearing vegetation and ending with the backfilling of mined voids for final rehabilitation.
