Operators in Africa’s mining sector will convene in Ghana from 11-12 September for the 5th West & Central Africa Mining Summit 2012 to tackle the challenges and opportunities in the west and central Africa mining industry.
Among the issues to be discussed will be the growth drivers for investments, especially China’s demand for mineral resources; the new sources of institutional capital for mining companies, and funding options for new discoveries. The summit will also deliberate on the question: is Africa an acquisitions-friendly market?
Distinguished speakers expected at the summit, which is taking place at the Accra International Conference Centre, include Ghana’s minister of lands and natural resources, Mike Hammah.
“This Summit puts the spotlight on the tremendous potential of west and central Africa mining economies. Investments here will play a huge role in generating revenue, employment and sustainable economic and social development. The Summit will be a one-stop information platform to facilitate the exchange of fresh information, experience and knowledge towards achieving the objectives of delivering sustainable mining projects. More importantly, the networking and partnership momentum will be an invaluable experience,” says Maggie Tan, the CEO of the conference organising company, Magenta Global Pte Ltd (Singapore).
A special feature of the two-day event will be the exhibition, which will showcase the latest technologies and best practices from the mining industry’s leading players.
The conference is officially endorsed by the Ghana ministry of lands and natural resources, and supported by the Liberia chamber of commerce and the geological society of Africa.
