Annual ‘Investing in African Mining Indaba’

3 – 6 FEBRUARY 2020

1.    Introduction

The Mining Indaba LLC is convening the Annual Investment in Africa Mining Indaba 2019 in Cape Town, from the 3rd –6th February 2020. The event will be held in Cape Town, South Africa at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). Team South Africa comprises of the departments of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE), Trade and Industry (DTI), Science and Innovation (DSI) as well as State Owned Companies reporting to the DMRE.  Proposed theme for Team SA at the 2020 Investing in African Mining Indaba is Accelerate mining investment through innovation.

2.    Background

Investing in African Mining Indaba, often referred to as “the Mining Indaba,” is an annual professional conference dedicated to the capitalisation and development of mining interests in Africa. It is currently the world's largest mining investment conference and Africa's largest mining event. For two decades, the annual Mining Indaba has served as the pathway for foreign investments into Africa's mining value chain - opportunities ranging from small diamond deposits to mega coal projects.

This year’s Investing in African Mining Indaba is expected to gather thousands of delegates representing nearly 2,100 international companies. They will interact with 400 sponsors and an anticipated 45 African and Non-African government delegations. The participants will represent nearly all the critical players in the African mining value chain. Investors, mining corporates, government ministers, international press, and other industry stakeholders should not miss this opportunity to network with the global mining industry.

Furthermore, it affords officials an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in mining worldwide and network with potential investors as well as partners in development.  This event provides exposure and presents a platform for government to set the developmental tone and promote mining investment in South Africa and introduce the international investment community to mining interests throughout Africa. In addition, it acts as a key build-up to the Opening of Parliament and the President’s State of the Nation Address.

3.    Objectives

  • Promote the implementation of new technology for the future of the South African mining industry, to maintain its competitive position, and for its sustainable development.

4.    Key messages
