According to MPs, the Mines and Mining Amendment Bill will change the game in the nation since it will treat farmers and miners equally when it comes to using the land and extracting minerals.

Before being presented to Parliament for discussion, the Bill is currently before the Attorney General’s office, according to Deputy Minister of Mines and Mining Development Polite Kambamura.

Deputy Minister Kambamura made this statement today at a workshop on the value chain of the gold output that included representatives from the mining industry, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, Fidelity Printers and Refiners, and the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development.

“We anticipate finishing the Bill in the upcoming two months. It will discuss the link between farmers and miners, and we will argue that all Zimbabweans should be treated similarly in this regard. Both our land and our minerals are equally ours, according to Deputy Minister Kambamura.

“The Bill will change the rules of the game. You as legislators must back it.

According to him, the Bill has since received Cabinet approval, clearing the way for its introduction into Parliament.

The workshop should consider how the nation might profit from its mineral wealth, according to Cde Edmund Mukaratigwa, an MP from Shurugwi South and chair of the Parliament’s portfolio committee on mines and mining development.

He stated that the workshop would discuss the government’s goals for a mining industry worth $12 billion by 2023, with gold output accounting for $4 billion of that total.
