On behalf of the Joburg Indaba team, I would like to thank you very much indeed for your contribution to this year’s Joburg Indaba. We truly appreciate your time, commitment and support. This was the 7th edition of this increasingly popular event and it is amazing to see how much it has grown and the optimism and resilience in SA’s mining industry. There was a real buzz around this year’s event - it has truly become a platform that is widely recognised for contributing huge value to the industry and we are glad that you were a part of it.
There were so many highlights this year: Minister Gwede Mantashe was once again on form, with his humour and love for the industry very much apparent. It was standing room only for Joseph Mathunjwa as he gave us his forthright views on the future of the industry. Mark Cutifani, our latest inductee into the Mining Hall of Fame, gave a very heartfelt presentation and confirmed Anglo American’s commitment to South Africa. The live link-up to London was a special highlight as were our various commodity panel discussions which gave us all true insights into the different issues surrounding PGMs, bulk mining, coal and battery minerals. There were frank and open debates around sector-wide challenges, capital allocation, the role of the unions and of course the “just transition” from coal to alternative energy sources, ESG and much more.
Many pictures were taken at the event and these will be available on the website under the gallery tab before long. The outstanding media coverage we received is also available through the website and more will be added as it is made available to us.
We’ll be back for the Joburg Indaba next year on 7 & 8 October 2020, also at the Inanda Club.
Thank you once again for joining us for an exhilarating couple of days and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
With very best wishes
