At this event, attendees will be looking at new efforts in sourcing innovative technologies to replace ageing mining machinery; rebuilding relationships with local communities; efforts to reduce downtime, improve safety and welfare; and driving the Sub-Saharan economy through mining. Delegates will also be looking at a few broader issues, including logistics, HSE, heavy machinery, communications, and completion and production services, to name a few.

Tony Frost, CEO for Sirocco Strategic Management, was an attendee at the event earlier this year, he said: "It's been a real pleasure to be here, at the African mining summit, and I think what makes the summit special is the variety of disciplines and the huge array of people from different parts of the continent, and that's something you don't often get the opportunity to be part of." He continues: "It was a great summit, extremely well organized and superbly communicated."

In attendance at next year's event will be: Andre van der Bergh, VP Strategic Projects for BHP Biliton; Ben Devries, GM Mining for Rio Tinto; Thomas Frempong, Mining Manager for Randgold; Renier Swart, Deputy Global Head of S&SD Risk & Assurance for Anglo American; and Barry Hodgkinson, VP Operations for Konkola Copper Mines. There will also be a dynamic mix of sponsors at the event, including: Shell Vivo, Tranter Holdings, Mammoet, Manitou and Minova.

Joe Thompson, NG Mining Africa Summit Director for GDS International, the global events company behind the event says: "The annual NG Mining Africa summit attracts the major players of the mining industry to thrash out fresh ideas, outline new projects and upgrade existing services across Sub-Saharan Africa on a peer-to-peer level."

He continues: "The 5* Arabella Western Cape Hotel and Spa will once again provide leading decision makers with a warm business environment for negotiation, strategy alignment and a format to conquer reoccurring challenges and headaches that impact production, safety, operational efficiency and most of all - the bottom line."
