Investing in African Mining Indaba (Mining Indaba) is solely dedicated to the successful capitalization and development of mining interests in Africa. Successor for over 27 years, Mining Indaba has a unique and broad perspective of the African mining industry, bringing together visionaries and innovators across the entire value chain. Additionally, Mining Indaba continues to support education, career development, sustainability, and other important causes in Africa.
Mining Indaba is the go-to, high-impact space for networking, and creating opportunities and conversations to close deal after deal.
The recent acquisition of 121 Group adds greater diversity and significant value to the Mining Indaba community. The partnership of these leading platforms will create an experience like no other, attracting more junior, mid-tier and major mining companies, investors and, as always, the largest gathering of pan-African ministers.
Mining Indaba is a fixture on the Cape Town and industry calendar. More than 6,500 mining experts descend on the city each February for five days of intense networking. The conference has a significant impact on the regional and wider economy of South Africa. In addition to contributing R177 million to South African GDP (80% of which came from international sources), it generated 274 full-time annual job equivalents in the country and contributed R22 million to national taxes.
It’s no secret that the past two years have presented unique global challenges, never seen on this massive scale in our modern eta. This underlines why Mining Indaba will take place in May 2022. The 2023 edition will return to its original place in February in the calendar.
