clubofmozambique (2011-09-29) The Mozambican government has decided to suspending the issue of new licenses for coal mining in Tete province, the inspector of the Mining Resources Ministry, Afonso Abica said Tuesday in Maputo.

According to the inspector, cited by newspaper Notícias, the suspension, which includes prospecting and surveying licenses, mining certificates and mining concessions aims to assess to what extent companies that already hold licenses are complying with the contracts signed with the government.

Over the last two years the government has granted over 112 licenses to 45 national and foreign companies linked to coal mining in Tete province, which is thought to have the largest coal reserves in the world.

On the sidelines of a seminar on reviewing the Mining Law, Mabica said that the decision to suspend the issuing of new mining licenses was only related to coal mining in Tete province and that other mining activities would not be affected.

The inspector also said that companies who were not complying with what had been stipulated in their contracts would be penalised and, in extreme cases, could have their licenses revoked.

“By revoking the mining licenses we want areas that are currently occupied without being explored can be handed over to other people who are interested and available to work on them” said Mabica.

Being from South Africa one must ask the question, who issued the licences in the first instance? and the result of this intervention, how much Chinese involvement will there be after this intervention?
