Although the year has only just begun, the AGE Team has already concluded our first exhibition for the year – the Investing in African Mining Indaba. This event, which took place in Cape Town in early February saw more than 350 investors, 166 junior miners and 220 mining companies come together under one roof.
According to African Outlook, this was perhaps one of the most successful of its kind to date. Managing Director, Alex Grose reportedly said: “Since Euromoney acquired Mining Indaba, the event has undergone significant changes and investment to take it back to a focused deal-making forum while supporting the needs of Africa’s mining industry.”
“In 2018 there was a more deliberate balance between investors, mining companies, government and service providers, and this really came to fruition with features like the Junior Mining Showcase where 50 junior mining companies, all with projects in Africa, were for the first time hosted in the middle of the event in a focused deal-making area,” he added.
AGE & 4Sight had a wonderful time and enjoyed rubbing shoulders with the who’s who in the mining industry. We were joined by the 4Sight Group’s newly appointed Sales Officer, Willie Ackerman, with whom we are looking forward to working with going forward.
