Maintain Social Licenses

Managing Director of MRA, Jerry Garry raised this during his presentation at the Community Affairs and Media Workshop this week.

He said: “When the State gives a mining lease or special mining lease, we are giving that license holder the rights to mine. But the people who own the land, hold the social license. So how do we maintain that social license and is it a responsibility that should be co-shared by every stakeholder?
