DRAFTING, NEGOTIATING, RE-NEGOTIATING MINING AGREEMENTS
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA | 30 JULY TO 01 AUGUST 2012
Trends and perspectives on the development of mineral resources in many African nations have varied substantially over the last fifty years. In some cases this had led to a review, and potentially a re-negotiation of, mining agreements that were originally intended to survive for extended durations. Understanding the divergence of objectives and the relative negotiating leverage of each party, whether discussing a new contract or re-negotiating an existing contract, can help to avoid common pitfalls and frustrating delays.
The workshop will cover traditional dispute resolution and termination provisions, but will focus on practical realities and identify contractual mechanisms to avoid situations where the only remedy is to arbitrate or terminate.
The workshop will cover basic concepts of contract law with a view towards identifying and managing risk, maximizing profits, adapting to changing circumstances and resolving disagreements.
Delegates will consider these issues in the context of typical contracts used in the mining industry and particularly contracts that are intended to endure over long periods, such as joint venture agreements, shareholder agreements and long-term product sale agreements.
Delegates will follow the contract cycle from negotiation through drafting and execution of the contract, implementation of the agreement, default, disputes and termination or expiration of the contract.
