Unearthing The Mining Indaba
It’s ‘mine’ time in Cape Town once again where over 7 000 enthusiastic Mining Indaba delegates from across the globe will walk through the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) between 8 and 11 February 2016. Soon, the Mother City will be transformed into the beating heart of the world’s mining industry; as each pulse will be felt throughout the globe.
Attending delegates will unearth Africa’s mining industry which has become a prominent gateway for foreign investors to see all of the continent’s potential. For over two decades the Mining Indaba has unearthed opportunities from small diamond deposits to mega coal projects.
To date, Africa holds 30% of the world’s natural resources and produces more than 60 minerals including gold, platinum group metals, diamonds, uranium, manganese, nickel, bauxite, cobalt and chromium. Only time will tell if gold and diamonds will sparkle again as a safe haven for investors.
An event of this size is bound is attract benefit-sharing viewpoints between delegates and ministerial teams which has always been a valuable contribution to the future of mining in Africa.
All eyes and ears will be glued to key topics such as, “Understanding financing alternatives for new sources of capital, unearthing opportunities in the regions of promise and identifying new downstream applications.”
There is no other African mining sector ‘gathering’ that comes close in terms of bringing together the whole mining constituency; which means the Mining Indaba is a must-go-to event. Together the delegates can positively develop mining interests in Africa.
