South African court rejects attempt to stop work at Tronox Fairbreeze mine Tronox announced that the Durban High Court "dismissed with costs" an application filed by the Mtunzini Conservancy for an injunction to halt early-phase construction at the company's Fairbreeze mine project in northern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The point of law under inspection by the court related to whether the Fairbreeze mine had lawfully commenced mining related operations in light of provisions contained in the Town Planning Ordinance 27 of 1949. As a result of the judgment, Tronox continues with early-phase construction of the Fairbreeze mine. This phase entails site establishment of the platforms for the primary wet plant site as well as temporary and permanent access roads. Tronox must still obtain its Water Use License before ramping up to full-scale construction and mine operation.
