Botswana contract SA firm for its new online mining cadastre system

The Botswana Ministry of Mineral Resources, Green Technology, and Energy Security recently awarded Spatial Dimension South Africa, a subsidiary of Trimble, a hardware, software, and services technology company, a contract to design and implement an online mining cadastre system.

Botswana Geoscience Institution is the contracting authority.

Working with the local Environmental Systems Research Institute partner – graphical information system and information technology company GIMS Botswana – Spatial Dimension will implement its Landfolio e-Government solution as an enterprise-scale mining cadastre system for the MMGE.

The implementation period is 12 months with a subsequent 24-month support and maintenance phase.

“We are very excited to work with the government of Botswana to fully digitise their existing processes and move them to an e-government-based mining cadastre system,” says Spatial Dimension president Bill Feast.

He adds that Botswana has, for many decades, been admired for having one of the best mining cadastre systems in the world.

“We look forward to assisting the government to become even more efficient, accountable and investor-friendly, while also driving government revenue collection in line with the national priority areas detailed in the 2021 Budget,” says Feast.

He highlights that, in the most recent Fraser Institute survey of mining jurisdictions, Botswana was again ranked as the most attractive mining jurisdiction in Africa. The country also features in the top ten mining jurisdictions globally in terms of the certainty of the administration, interpretation and enforcement of existing regulations.

“Botswana now joins a very long list of countries that have benefited from our locally developed Landfolio technology. I do not doubt that their new system will become the international gold standard for modern online mining cadastre systems,” concludes Feast.
