CAWOOD, F.  and  NAIDOO, S.. The preparation of plans and diagrams at South African mines. Where is the boundary between the roles of mine and land surveyors?. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2010, vol.110, n.5, pp.199-205. ISSN 2411-9717.

SYNOPSIS The newly implemented mineral law framework exacerbated the need to clarify the roles and responsibilities of mine and land surveyors in the preparation and registration of plans and diagrams. The main concern is that survey tasks may be performed by persons who are not considered competent under the different laws. The methodology used was to analyse historic and present legislation on the issue in order to formulate a narrow interpretation of the current requirements. The major findings are tabulated to present a summary of who is responsible for which areas of survey.
