Reasons for Site Inspection:
HWC served a stop works order on the Elandsfontein Exploration and Mining Company on friday the 20th of February 2015. The stop works order was initiated by the non compliance of the company in terms of the processes under section 38(8) of the NHRA. The Stop Works Order was served on the mining office on 20 February, at which point, following a brief discussion it became clear that the directors of EEM were unlikely to comply with the order. The need for a site inspection became apparent at this point.

PM and GT visisted the construction camp for the road developemnt. the road development is situated roughly halfway betweent he town of hopefield and the lanebaanweg T junction
A follow up site inspection will be undertaken on monday 2 March 2015. This will be to ensure that work has not continued. The Court interdict will continue.
