    Aidan Davy will be moderating a panel on whether the mining industry can ever be nature positive. Panellists will be tackling questions relating to:

    • What does it mean to be nature positive and how does this transition to mining.
    • Can miners be stewards of land and nature? 
    • Should there be no go areas for mining, and if so, where in Africa?

The ICMM team will be in Cape Town for Investing in African Mining Indaba, which will be celebrating its 30th anniversary. Join the team as they discuss sustainability, nature, and change in the industry.

The 2024 theme: “Embracing the power of positive disruption: A bold new future for African mining”  outlines 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 for the planet.

2024 offers the opportunity to be bold and daring and to shift the conversation, and next year only represents the start of this new journey. Mining Indaba consists of five days (including Ministerial Symposium on Sunday) where all strategic and influential stakeholders – including governments, private sector, investors and disruptive services providers – gather to network and exchange ideas that will propel their businesses forward.

The event has evolved over the years to include a variety of content streams and special sessions addressing diverse subjects of relevance in addition to unveiling this year’s programmes that will support the theme of the event.
