Goldplat (GDP LN) has announced an update demonstrating robust operational progress as well as the potential impacts from the recently proposed changes to the South African Mining Charter. The notable changes that GDP would need to make relate to BEE ownership and board quotas. Currently the required BEE stake, with which GDP is compliant, is 26%. However, the new proposals would increase the stake to 30%. The Chamber of Mines of South Africa had not been consulted on the proposed changes and given the controversial nature of the new Charter; it is taking legal action against the Government to prevent its implementation. This is likely to be a drawn out process.
