Mining ministers and an undersecretary for mining from Tanzania, DRC and South Sudan will join the CEO of the Rwanda Mines, Petroleum & Gas Board (RMB) in a ministerial discussion panel on regional mineral trade and investment at the upcoming East & Central Africa Mining Forum conference and exhibition.
The inaugural edition of the event will be hosted by the RMB from 28-29 October 2019 in Kigali. Global mining and exploration companies, high-level government representatives and suppliers of technology and services to the industry will attend the conference.
The conference programme features a ministerial panel, while well-known mining pioneers will share their experiences in the field and current success stories will be highlighted.
The event has already secured the support of leading mining and exploration companies in the region as well as top suppliers of technology and services to the industry. Aldango Gold Refinery is the diamond sponsor while Luna Smelter and Barron are gold sponsors. Flowserve and Ivanhoe are silver sponsors and CMD, GlobalTT, Minelab, Ngali Mining, Spectrometer, TechMet and Walkabout Resources have partnered as bronze sponsors.
East & Central Africa Mining Forum will provide participants access to best practices to gain insights into reliable, cost effective technologies and fast-tracking financial support. Industry participation will include junior mining operators and exploration companies; stakeholders from the mining equipment, technology and service (METS) sector; transport and logistics firms to help cross-border cooperation; and financiers, who will help provide the right financial model and tools for projects of any scale.
The event is organised by Spintelligent, a Cape Town-based exhibition and conference producer across the continent in the infrastructure, energy and mining sectors.
