Laws and regulations are as important as the mineral deposits characteristics for the success of a mineral venture.
Some jurisdictions have new or just difficult to obtain regulations, at least for the outside investor; that is the case of diamond and mining laws in Angola. To make the investors’ life easier (in these difficult times), I have set up a special section of the xmbl.wordpress.com dedicated to mining or investment related legislation under the website’s Diamonds section.
In its first steps, I have added the current Angolan Mining Code and the Artisanal Diamond Exploitation Regulation to the Angolan subsection of Legislation. As the work evolves, other legislative documents from Angola and elsewhere (Belgium, European Union, Congo – Brazzaville, Mozambique, Portugal, etc) will be added. Notice of those additions will be given in future posts.
This is a resource managed by me and my company – Sínese. If you have mining related laws you thing may add to our collection and are useful to the mining investing community we’ll be happy to to share them here; just send me an email or leave a comment at the blog.
