Part B: Mineral Rights - Part B-5: Development Minerals - 29. Development Minerals | 29.5 Types of Rights Granted

This provision seeks to highlight all the development mineral rights and related rights that may be granted under the law. This can be done in different ways. A complete list in one provision of the mineral rights granted under the law clearly shows the mineral rights obtainable under the law. The mineral rights may also be listed according to categories determined in the law, i.e. exploration rights, exploitation rights, and processing rights, and trading rights.

29.5 Example 1:

Article [_]

The following mineral rights may be granted under this Part:

(a)Development Minerals Exploration Licence

(b)Artisanal Development Minerals Exploitation Licence

(c)Small Scale Development Minerals Exploitation Licence

(d)Large Scale Development Minerals Exploitation Licence

(e)Development Minerals Processing Licence

(f)Development Minerals Trader/Dealer Licence

(g)Development Minerals Transport Licence

(h)Development Minerals (Export) Licence

(i)[Others Applicable Licences]

Annotation

This example simply lists all the various rights granted under this part. It must be clarified (because it is important that development minerals are utilized locally) that export licences here are limited to licences for exporting minerals to other countries within a region or for exporting value added products or where approved limited quantities of unprocessed development minerals.

29.5 Example 2:
