SAIMM Annual Banquet 2016

The SAIMM Annual Banquet was held on Saturday, 5th March 2016 at the Sandton Convention Centre. Approximately 360 VIPs, members and guests attended. The guest speaker was Johnny Clegg, a South African icon who spoke about crossing the cultural divide. Johnny’s talk was inspirational, interspersed with a couple of songs and interesting dance moves.

Fellowships of the Institute were awarded to Paul den Hoed, Carel Roode, and Simon Tose.

The evening was a great success and we wish to thank our sponsors, without whom the event would not have been possible.

    The Competition Commission has recommended that the Competition Tribunal approve the proposed merger between ferrochrome producer ASA Metals and Newco. Newco is a newly created joint venture between Sinosteel and Samancor. Sinosteel operates globally in the production, supply and procurement of a range of commodity products, primarily focused on the production and supply of steel. “The proposed transaction is unlikely to substantially prevent or lessen competition in the market for the production and supply of ferrochrome. In addition, there are no public interest concerns,” the commission said.
