Doornpoort Pretoria's new Mining town?

Updated 06 March 2013

PROPOSED PROSPECTING FOR PLATINUM ON THE FARM DOORNPOORT 295 JR

WOULD YOU LIKE A MINE RIGHT ON YOUR OWN DOORSTEP? 
Gemsbok Platinum (Pty) Ltd. has lodged an application for platinum prospecting rights on the remainder of the Farm Doornpoort 295JR, situated approximately 10 km north of Pretoria on the outskirts the suburb Doornpoort.

An environmental consultancy has confirmed that Gemsbok Platinum (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary of Sable Platinum Holdings has lodged an application for prospecting rights with the Department of Minerals and Energy on this land that is in extent of 2779,64 hectares. (Source) 

The proposed prospecting would be conducted over the next 5 years.

Awarding of prospecting rights would lead to mining permits. Mining activities can affect the area for up to 30 years.

This development would most probably impact negatively upon ALL property prices in the enitre Doornpoort, Sinoville, Montane, Magalieskruin area. In fact it would impact on the entire region, including the Moot area, Derdepoort, Kameeldrift and surrounds. 

The quiet neighbourhood north of the Magalies berg would be lost forever - squatters, violent mining strikes, hostels and compounds, dust, noise, traffic, trucks and every other curse would follow. 


Safety and security would certainly be lost forever. Burglaries, armed robberies, theft, hijackings and other crimes would become the norm.

Health would be affected due to dust and allergies. Vehicles' maintenance would be affected. Few people realise this, but it could even half the life-span of a car's timing belt. (See the timing belt manufacturers' data as well as vehicle manufacturers warranty information)

A meeting has been arranged with the mining consultants Batho Earth.
