In 2011 the Ministry of Mines and Energy announced changes to the country’s mineral legislation in order to introduce new aspects in the mining sector including:



  • Resolution by Cabinet to declare certain minerals to be “strategic”
  • Reserving licensing of such minerals, once declared, “exlusively” for Epangelo Mining Company.
  • Increasing focus on “beneficiation” of minerals produced in Namibia.



The above emphasise an increased local participation in the mineral sector as per the country’s Vision 2030 with the focus on the following:


 “To ensure that Namibia’s mineral resources are strategically exploited and optimally beneficiated, providing equitable opportunities for all Namibians to participate in the industry, while ensuring that environmental impacts are minimised and investments resulting from mining are made to develop other sustainable industries and human capital for long-term national development.”
