Driving sustainable investment in African Mining

Why Attend – Investors


Now more than ever, Africa’s mining sector is an attractive investment destination. 

Investing in African Mining Indaba hosted 88 exploration companies, 340 juniors, and 130 mid-tier and major companies in 2024. In 2025, a larger turnout of exploration and mining companies with African assets is expected. This offers an excellent opportunity to connect with existing clients and discover new investment opportunities to diversify your portfolio.

In today's mining investment landscape, future-proofing is paramount and making an investment decision requires a holistic approach that takes into consideration not only production-driven profits but also responsible governance practices, environmental impact, social engagement, as well as a stable regulatory landscape.

At Mining Indaba, we recognise how identifying projects that meet these multifaceted criteria is no easy task. However, our mission is clear: to facilitate meaningful discussions and showcase projects that align with your needs.
