What's on in 2022?

After a virtual event in 2021, the May 2022 Mining Indaba promises to be the must-attend event for every executive in African mining.

As well as gathering the largest number of investors, mining executives and Ministers for four days’ worth of investment discussions and deal-making, there are a number of new and enhanced initiatives planned too. 

A glance at what to expect in May 2022

The Battery Metals Day has been expanded to the Green Metals Day and will focus on optimising the opportunity to increase the supply of green metals for global energy demands.

Procurement teams and service companies will be able to strategically connect in the new Hosted Buyer Programme and private networking function.

Like the Junior Mining Companies pitching in the Investment Battlefield, which will be back again, 2022 will see the launch of the Innovation & Research Battlefield - a new platform for collaboration between the mining industry and academia.

A new content stream, Infrastructure & Supply Chain will address the growing importance of the mine’s role in developing communities and local economies.

A new Business Matchmaking technology supplier will raise the bar for pre-arranged investment meetings.

Following a record 30% female speaker line-up in 2020, 1 in 3 speakers will be female in 2022. You can nominate a speaker by getting in touch.

Evolution of African Mining

Evolution of African Mining: Investing in the Energy Transition, ESG and Economies


The content and discussion will run under the theme “Evolution of African Mining: Investing in the Energy Transition, ESG and Economies” where together the industry will explore how Africa, and more particularly mining, investors and society - can thrive amid the decarbonisation, social, technological, and economic (‘the sociotechnomic and decarbonisation dispensation’) that prevail across the continent. 

If you only choose one in-person event in 2022, make sure it’s where all the industry's movers and shakers will be. Register for Mining Indaba to join them.
