The Ministry of Mines and Energy will suspend the consideration and processing of all new applications for mineral rights for nine months as of 18 November 2020 to 17 August 2021. This suspension will only affect prospective or new applications and was necessitated due to the ministry reviewing the requirements and procedures under the Minerals (Prospecting and Mining) Act relating to the application for mineral rights and other provisions not included in the Act. The suspension has been proposed for purposes of efficiency, and to allow the ministry to complete this process within the shortest time possible.
