This order was issued with the consent and cooperation of Gecamines"  "On February 6, 2012, the D.R.C. Mining Registry posted a communique on its website confirming that PTM is not the registered holder of any mining rights whatsoever in the that country. The communique states the Mining Registry took note of Greenock's public statements claiming it had rights to the Kakanda tailings, but confirms that Boss Mining holds the exclusive right to develop the Kakanda tailings."
