Africa looks forward to new ‘power-ful possibilities’ with the return of the Investing in African Mining Indaba to Cape Town, South Africa, from 5–8 February 2024.

In celebration of Mining Indaba’s 30th anniversary, its programmes have taken on a new direction and purpose with the aim of marking the milestone. The 2024 theme, “Embracing the power of positive disruption: A bold new future for African mining” represents this objective, outlining the need for Africa’s mining industry to embrace change in order to become a meaningful global competitor as key minerals are required to drive a sustainable future.

The event is aiming to disrupt traditional thinking around processes and discourse to explore what the African mining industry truly needs to resolve challenges. Technology is a great lever in achieving a better future for all stakeholders, but so are innovative ideas and thoughts around changing conventional approaches to mining.

African Mining’s January Indaba Outlook 2024 issue is therefore brimming with thought leadership and insight into the journey ahead of the continent’s mining industry and its global role.
