           Requirements of the “Charter”
               1. Human Resource Development (The development of people)

                      This should include:
                      Your skills development plan – What types of training will
                       you be providing for your staff or even new people employed
                       by you.
                      Mentorship Plan – Much like the old apprenticeship system,
                       this plan should say who you will be taking under your wing
                       to assist, over and above formal training, to help the person
                       to grow in your company or help another company to grow in
                       the industry.
                      Internship & Bursary – This means taking on students for
                       instance from Technikon or Colleges to get their practical
                       experience with you, or paying fees for students who cannot
                       afford to pay for themselves.

           Requirements of the “Charter”
               2. Employment Equity Plan
                For this you need to show how many HDSA’s (Historically
                  Disadvantaged South Africans) you have employed in your
                  company and specifically how you will be able to develop
                  HDSA’s in your company to reach the target of 10% woman
                  employed and 40% HDSA participation in management
                  positions.

               3. Procurement Plan – (Where do I buy from?)
                The aim is to assist HDSA companies to grow through giving
                  them the first chance to supply any of the capital equipment,
                  consumables or services that you pay for. You can also ask
                  you current supplier to partner with an HDSA company to
                  supply you if you cannot find an HDSA company.

               4. Ownership & joint ventures
                The target set by the Mining Charter is that there should be
                  15% BEE ownership in businesses within 5 years and 26%
                  in 10 years.
                This can be achieved by selling shares in your business,
                  creating a worker’s trust, etc. or by going into joint ventures
                  with HDSA companies to supply clients. When doing a joint
                  venture the target to achieve will be 51% BEE in the case of
                  the new company formed in the joint venture.

               5.      Monitoring & reporting

                      It is important that what you give in as a Broad-based Socio-
                       economic Development Plan is something you will be able to
                       implement because you must report back to the Regulator
                       on what you have achieved according to the goals you set
                       for yourself

               6. Undertaking
