The South African Heritage Resources Agency (SAHRA) is aware of the concerns raised regarding mining activities at the Provincial Heritage Site of Canteen Kopje, and how this could impact on the continued conservation and heritage value of the site. SAHRA would like to highlight that it did not issue a permit for mining at Canteen Kopje, nor did it receive a formal application for such activity.

The Entity is currently reviewing the information at its disposal in order to make informed decisions regarding the matter and have already been in contact with some of the relevant stakeholders.
