Investing in African Mining Indaba

A focus on deal-making, sustainable development and mining of the future

Returning to Cape Town from 5-8 February, Mining Indaba has a fresh new look and focus to ensure 2018 attendees get the most out of the biggest mining investment event in the world.

For the first time ever there will be a deal-making area hosting 60 junior mining companies in the heart of the event; the Junior Mining Showcase. Here the more than 350 qualified, buy-side investors who attend Mining Indaba will be able to meet the hottest emerging projects from across Africa.

Sustainable development will sit front and centre at the event in 2018, providing a platform for mining companies, governments and community groups to come together and define a sustainable vision for the future of the sector.

As the African mining sector continues to develop, the new Intergovernmental Summit will see panels of Ministers from Africa and beyond debate and discuss learnings that Africa can take from other mining jurisdictions.

Modernisation and digitisation are currently being discussed by many a mining company, so the new Mining 2050 Innovation Track will host the COOs, Project Directors and more as they hear successful case studies, and discover the latest technologies to invest in.

The Investment Battlefield is back and bigger than ever. Watch 24 junior mining companies pitch to leading investors in commodity focused heats, while the final will take place on the Main Stage.

All of this will be accompanied by presentations and exciting debates on the main stage, numerous networking opportunities and the chance to meet 160-plus junior mining companies, 220-plus mining companies in total, and more than 25 government ministers and all the other key stakeholders in the sector.

Mining Indaba 2018 is set to be the most exciting edition yet, so register online now at to ensure you don’t miss out!
