Key mining issues to be debated at Joburg Indaba 2019: Confirm your place

Important subjects will be explored at this annual gathering of the industry, renowned for its straight talk, refreshing insights and intimate atmosphere.

The 7th edition of the Joburg Indaba is set to take place at the Inanda Club, Johannesburg on 2nd and 3rd October 2019 and will bring all the key stakeholders together – government, SOEs, mining houses, investors, labour unions and other industry thought leaders – both local and international, to contribute to a timely and critical discussion on the current and future role of mining in SA and beyond.

Issues and questions to be debated include: where SA mining is currently, how the world, particularly investors, sees us now and what political, economic, environmental and market developments are influencing the industry going forward.

Key questions

In typical open, sometimes blunt, but always constructive fashion as has come to be associated with this event, we will tackle key questions such as:

  • Are we at a point of policy acceptability to attract investment and ensure growth?
  • How does “the world” sees us as an investment destination?
  • What’s happening in the global economic arena and how is this impacting the mining industry?
  • What is the outlook for coal mining and SA coal?
  • Which new energy materials will be needed in the future? Do we know? Are we sure?
  • Is the future of PGMs in our own hands?
  • How do we ensure security of energy supply for the future?
  • How is the market unfolding for bulk commodities? South African’s opportunities and challenges.
  • Spotlight on ESG: what should mining companies be doing to promote a culture of responsibility and good governance?

These and other important subjects will be explored at this annual gathering of the industry, renowned for its straight talk, refreshing insights and intimate atmosphere.
