The 4 day-long annual Investing in African Mining Indaba held in Cape Town starts today. It runs from Monday the 4th to Thursday the 7th of February.
The event will see approximately 7000 delegates attend the Cape Town International Convention Centre for the conference’s 25th anniversary.
It is widely regarded as the world’s largest gathering of most influential stakeholders in African mining industry – from financiers and investors to mining professionals and government officials.
The main theme of the conference will be the championing Africa’s sustainable economic growth, exploring how the industry can be supported and drive investment.

This year a greater focus has been made on junior miners, through the set up of an investor pavilion that will allow for deal-making between investors and junior miners.
“We would like to give investors more opportunities to meet junior mining companies and have moved the VIP Investor Lounge to be together with the Junior Mining Showcase inside the Investment Pavilion to facilitate engagement and deal-making between the two key sectors,” the organisers told African News Agency.
A key focus of the event will be to secure deals – transitioning the conference from discussions to business. The change means an effort to transform it to a “deal-making and investment-focused event” according to Director Alex Grose.
Also in attendance will be President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa, President Akufo-Addo of Ghana, and over 750 investors and dealmakers.
There is to be a whole day dedicated to battery metals, as well as a sustainable development day.
