Mining Certificate books go missing at the Bindura Mines office

Zimbabwe Mining certificate

Mining Certificate (Mining title) books have gone missing at the Bindura Ministry of Mines and Mining Development office.

The Ministry of Mines and Mining Development have since engaged the services of the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) who are currently investigating the case.

Mining certificate books are designed the same way as receipt books that mining commissioners (Provincial Mining Directors) sign and issue when certifying ownership of mining claims or concessions.

The two books that were reportedly stolen last week in Bindura present fears for miners that they might lose their claims to unscrupulous individuals and companies.

Sources in the Ministry are saying that the Ministry has not yet come up with an official position on what happened to the missing books.

“There is no official position yet, the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) and the Ministry are investigating. They are yet to ascertain several factors whether they are missing or its misplacement,” the source said.

In 2021 a map was stolen at the Chinhoyi Mines office with many miners reportedly losing mining claims due to the misdeed.
