The African mining industry’s sheer abundance of potential is in little doubt. Yet for        mining companies operating across the continent, as well as those pursuing the vast opportunities it provides, their ability to capitalise upon this potential is undermined by wide reaching and varying risks. The first ever Mining Risk Management Summit: Africa, created by Resourceful Events and partnered by the Mining Journal is the ultimate forum for all those seeking to develop effective risk mitigation strategies.

Featuring presentations, case studies and panel discussions from some of the industry’s foremost risk experts, the summit will guarantee you exposure to the most cutting-edge risk management practices. Following extensive industry research the programme specifically targets the most prominent and threatening risks to the industry right now. From resource nationalism to site security, labour issues to corruption, stakeholder engagement to infrastructure challenges, the risks that threaten to compromise your business will be covered.

Spanning 4 days, from the 25th to the 28th November , and brought directly to the             African mining industry in Johannesburg, this high level summit is a must attend for all  those striving to overcome risk and maximise profit in Africa.
