Mining Indaba 2018 & Tamesis – The platform for sustainable mining growth in Africa
15 December 2017, London
Mining Indaba has been working with industry partners including Tamesis over the past 12 months, to cement its position as Africa’s only mining event.
“The Mining Indaba is the biggest investment in mining event in the world – it’s where deal-making happens. Projected attendance is currently estimated to be over 220 mining companies, including 160 plus junior mines.”
“We initiated a series of changes to the 2017 event to bring Mining Indaba back to its roots, and to meet the changing needs of the mining industry. For 2018, we’ll be further enhancing networking and deal-making platforms,” says Alex Grose, Mining Indaba MD.
Making the Junior Mining companies more visible to investors has been a significant focus for 2018, and has seen the launch of the Junior Mining Showcase at the heart of the event. “Identifying and working with key partners including Tamesis has been instrumental in creating this exciting new feature, hosting 60 of the hottest emerging minors with projects across Africa. It’s important for us at Mining Indaba to support growth in the industry, and that growth is coming from the juniors.”
Spaces in the Showcase are being snapped up fast with Kibaran Resources, Perseus Mining, Lucapa Diamonds, Deep-South Resources and Cardinal Resources all signing up in the last days!
The standout success of this year’s Mining Indaba, the Investment Battlefield, also returns in 2018. This Shark Tank/Dragon’s Den-style competition will be enhanced to include even more mining entrepreneurs pitching their projects to managers of some of the world’s biggest mining funds. Directors of emerging mining companies with a market cap or asset base below US$50 million are encouraged to submit their interest in taking part and having the chance to win prizes such as a main stage presentation at the 2019 Mining Indaba!
The further, 2017 saw over 350 investors attending on the Investor Relations programme, which is free for qualified, buy-side investors. “That’s a big differentiator for us – the investors who attend the event have capital ready to invest in projects,” says Alex.
