Zimbabwe is currently using a manual system of registering mining claims which has caused serious problems such as double allocation of claims resulting in disputes.

Such problems have affected mineral production and reduced effectiveness of other policies such as the use it or lose it policy and the ease of doing business which is aimed at attracting investment into the country.

The efforts by government to computerise the mining cadastre system, a process of awarding and administration of mining title system has not yet yielded any publicly noticeable results to date.

The old system being used is prone to manipulation, corruption and takes long to complete owing to bureaucracy. With such a situation and delays in fully implementing the system, several allegations have been thrown around including fears that some Officials might be benefiting from the archaic system.
