Mines Ministry responds to court ruling

Lithium miner Xinfeng Investments has succeeded in its urgent application to the High Court to stop Minister of Mines and Energy Tom Alweendo from revoking its mining licence.  While Alweendo alleged that Xinfeng, among other things, provided fraudulent information in its application for the licence the court found that he does not have the power to revoke the licence and should instead have approached the courts for judicial oversight. Ministry spokesperson Andreas Simon.
