A court hearing for a challenge by South Africa’s mining industry to revisions to a sector charter which include raising levels of black ownership has been postponed to February from December, country’s Chamber of Mines said on Monday.

“A judge decided that two days was not enough time and asked for three days, so the matter has been postponed,” said Memory Johnstone, a spokeswoman for the chamber.
