The sustainable implementation of your SLP is the most critical element in achieving and maintaining ongoing compliance with the:
Mineral Petroleum Resources Development Act (MPRDA)
Department of Mineral Resources (DMR)
With our proven process, you’re confident you will get your SLP rapidly, compliantly and professionally.
1. Rapid compliance assessment and close-out report (if applicable)
For existing mining right’ holders Lulalab will assist you in drafting your close-out report. Lulalab will use the close-out report and other relevant documentation as input into the development of the new 5-year SLP.
2. Regional analysis and LED scoping assessment
Lulalab will undertake a research exercise, to understand the mine communities and zone of influence, that will inform the design and implementation of contextually appropriate local economic development programmes.
3. Stakeholder Consultation Process
Throughout the process, Lulalab will engage with all the relevant key stakeholders, ensuring that they can meaningfully contribute to the SLP programmes.
4. Refinement of LED concepts, projects and plan
Lulalab will write up the project plans for inclusion into the SLP document.
5. Compilation of the new 5-year SLP
Lulalab will undertake the compilation of a new SLP document. This will be done in a manner to ensure that the SLP is contextually appropriate to both the company, the operational regions and the local communities surrounding the operation.
