The Rooiberg Breede River Conservancy is 13,549 hectares of diverse wild life, bird species and unique veld with stunning views of the Langeberg and Rooiberg mountains. The scenic beauty of the area is one of the key attractions for tourists visiting historical Robertson and it was identified as a top priority for conservation by the Succulent Karoo Ecosystem Programme (SKEP), the WWF initiated Lesley Hill Succulent Karoo Trust and the National Protected Area Expansion Strategy.

But this critical biodiverse area is under threat and the authorities are allowing this to happen! Situated just 14 km outside Robertson and 700 meters north east of the R60 on the farm of Gannaboschvlakte 51 is a planned site for clay mining and brick production. Clay resources will be extracted from the property using open pit mining techniques and the brick making facility will be situated on the same premises.

  • Responding Statement

    Since our AGM, the Rooiberg Breede River Conservancy instructed Smith, Ndlovu and Summers Attorneys to prepare a Responding Statement in respect of appeal noted against the refusal by The Department of Mineral Resources for the Gannabosch Clay Mine to continue. A responding statement was prepared and submitted in terms of regulation 5 of the National Appeal Regulations read with the relevant provisions of section 43 of the National Environmental Management Act 107 of 1998 (u201cNEMAu201d). So far, R120 000 has been paid towards the appeal processes which understandably has depleted the Conservancyu2019s investments. We want to thank all the members that have donated funds up till now towards the processes and hereby once again urge those members that wish to contribute, no matter how small an amount, to please proceed accordingly. Help stop the mine on our doorstep!
