After a well-deserved rest the MTE team plans to hit the ground running this year and we have a fantastic set of shows planned for the first quarter of 2023.

First up will be our regularly featured Cullinan show, which will cater to the needs of the diamond mining industry. We met with Cullinan management during November last year to ensure that we can meet all their needs and received several challenges from them, all of which we plan to meet head-on. If you have been wanting to get involved with the diamond industry then this is the perfect opportunity for you.

Additionally, we have also engaged with several smaller operations in the area, including quarries, sand mines, transportation and agriculture. To cater to these operations we will be organising suppliers of tooling, pumps, lighting and fuel management – to name just a few. With so many exciting opportunities for new business connections, this is a show not to be missed!

Following on from this in March will be our first over-border trip for the year happening in Botswana, which will be divided into three shows: Letlhakane, Palapye and Jwaneng (6-10 March). With the country’s impressive natural resources and world-class mining operations this is a trip worth adding to your calendar.

Another highlight from the first quarter includes the Swakop Uranium show – another cross-border affair, this time with neighbouring Namibia (30 March 2023). In addition to suppliers to the Uranium processing industry, exhibitors we would most like to bring along would include: tailings solutions, conveyor repairs and components as well as heavy earth moving equipment for opencast mining (mining shovels, dump trucks etc). Automation solutions are also likely to be needed.

On the 18th of April will be the Mooinooi exhibition in the North West province. The town is home to several major mines, with the focus being on platinum group metals, palladium, and chrome. These operations include mining, processing and smelting as well as bulk tailings retreatment – so if you can supply innovative products or services which would be useful to any of the above endeavours then book your spot now to avoid disappointment.

Last but certainly not least on the list of highlights for Q1 will be Rustenburg, home to the world’s largest platinum refinery as well as many processing and smelting plants. This is always a highly anticipated event on our calendar and we are certain this year will be no different.
