Xinfeng Investments (Pty) Ltd applied for and was issued a mining license by the Minister of Mines and Energy on 6 September 2022. Between 26 October 2022 and 29 March 2023, the Minister invited and received representations from Xinfeng on at least three occasions, on why the Minister should not, at first, cancel, and later, revoke, the license.
