South Africa 

The recent change in leadership is heralding a promising new dawn for the mining industry in South Africa.  The Honourable Godfrey Oliphant, Deputy Minister of Mineral Resources of the Republic of South Africa, will lead a discussion on the future of the mining industry under the new leadership in South Africa. 

Battery Minerals

Heightened global demand for electric vehicles and developments in the energy storage sector have put Africa's bountiful deposits of "battery minerals" in the spotlight, attracting both interest and capital from investors around the world.  But can the regulatory frameworks and supply chains in many African jurisdictions handle this revolution? 

For a closer look at these, and other game-changing trends, join our panel of government officials, industry leaders and experts as they discuss this revolution and consider what the coming months and years have in store for the mining industry in Africa.
