The Future of African Mining

Opportunities and Innovation in African Mining

The world’s most attractive minerals are in Africa, and only in Africa. Beneficiation of our natural resources is vital to the future of the continent, and we have recently invested in large-scale projects to add value to platinum and bauxite here in Africa. Africa Finance Corporation is actively seeking investment opportunities in mining across the continent. We remain extremely confident of the future of the sector.

Samaila Zubairu, CEO Africa Finance Corporation

South Africa is showcasing the vast opportunities there are for international investment in the country. We aim to rebuild investor confidence, restore good governance in public institutions.”

President Cyril Ramaphosa, President of South Africa

Mining has played an integral role in the economic growth and development of South Africa since its inception. We are embarking on a strong drive to drive to increase exploration, with a proposal for specific tax incentives on exploration projects. We have reviewed the mining charter. Our message is that South Africa is open for investment in mining.

I believe in South Africa and I believe in the mining industry. Some say it is a sunset industry, but in realitiy it is a sunrise industry. There are opportunities ready to be explored across Southern Africa. The private sector is showing it will invest in this economy, and we will make this country better.
