Mineral Law: Principles and Policies in Perspective provides a unique look at the context of current mineral law. It examines the system introduced by the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Act 28 of 2002 by juxtaposing it with preceding generations of mineral law. It deals with the regulatory and proprietary aspects of mineral law, the constitutionality of the transitional provisions introducing the new mineral law order, its continuity with former generations of mineral law.

This book meets the need of scholars and practitioners for an accessible text that provides a broader view of the origins, roles and functions of current legislation on mineral resources.
