This year will see the return of the much-anticipated annual Investing in African Mining Indaba 2023 – regarded as the world’s largest gathering of the most influential stakeholders in the African mining industry. The Indaba is due to hit Cape Town from 6-9 February 2023.

Across four days, the possible future of mining on the African continent will be discussed as the event brings together key players from across the mining industry – including ministers, senior government representatives, mining companies, mid and junior miners, investors, professional services as well as mining equipment and service providers.

Now that the world has begun to emerge from seclusion following the gradual recession of the Covid-19 pandemic it is time to set about getting the various African economies back on track, something the mining industry has already done admirably considering the immense pressures created by the impact felt on global supply chains as well as the transition towards sustainable energy and the unique challenges faced by the African continent. This is a new chapter in African mining and MTE will be part of the new story, we hope you will be too.

New opportunities – new challenges

The themes for this year’s Mining Indaba will be centred around Stability, Security and Supply. There are many opportunities for unlocking Africa’s capabilities through investment but there are also significant challenges to overcome as well. This year’s programme will therefore delve into integral economic empowerment strategies, ways to support supply chain security for the energy transition and seizing opportunities to capitalise on the commodities super cycle.

A number of new initiatives and programmes will also be debuted this year. These include the Explorers Showcase, the Junior MINE and the Official Government Leaders Programme.

Delegates will also benefit from mainstay content streams during Indaba week including the Ministerial Symposium, Intergovernmental Summit, Green Metals Day, Sustainable Development Day, the Young Leaders Forum and the General Counsel Forum. Also making a return is the Innovation & Research Battlefield, which is a unique platform for academic institutions and start-ups to showcase their latest ideas.

Mining & Technical Exhibitions will be covering the Indaba through our sister publication African Mining – Sharyn Macnamara, writer for the publication, aims to have her thumb on the pulse of the continent’s latest developments in mining by engaging with delegates from across Africa and the globe. Join us as we explore the forefront of major news, we will keep you posted on any significant details and information as they occur, so stay tuned!
