Transvaal Gold Mining Estates Limited (TGME), a subsidiary of Theta Gold Mines Limited, is the holder of a mining right, with reference number MP30/5/1/2/2/83MR (83 MR), granted in terms of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act, 2002 (Act No. 28 of 2002) (MPRDA) over various properties in the Pilgrims Rest area. TGME propose to redevelop some of its historical underground mines, namely Clewer, Dukes and Morgenzon (CDM), Frankfort, and Beta North within its exiting mining right area.
