Driving sustainable investment in African Mining

General Counsel Forum

Mining Indaba General Counsel Forum 2024 | Disruptor or Disrupted?



Mining in Africa requires companies to understand and navigate complex legal risks and multi-layered legal regimes. In an age unparalleled disruption through technology, geopolitical shifts and ways-of-working, it has never been more important for in-house legal, risk and compliance professionals to consider whether they are destined to always be the disrupted or whether the uniqueness of their roles allow them to embrace a disruptor role... as well as what, exactly, this means!


February 2024 will, once again, see a unique gathering of the industry's leading legal minds at the General Counsel Forum - part of the Investing in African Mining Indaba initiative. Where we'll be discussing the key regional and global legal trends facing mining lawyers working in Africa. A Legal Indaba provides a platform for the mining lawyer community to connect and discuss the growing expectations placed on the mining GC by the board and investors in response to regional trends and global policy reforms.


Join us for a day of practical learning and networking at the GC Forum 2024 on 8 February at the CTICC.


*Attendance is open only to in-house legal/compliance/risk professionals.
