The Minerals Council South Africa is the premier body representing employers in the mining sector. It represents 90% of all mining operations by value.

The Junior and Emerging Miners Desk (JEMD), a programme in the Minerals Council, represents 38 junior and mid-tier producers as well as exploration/development companies. In addition, the JEMD works closely with mining associations, particularly the South African Diamond Producers Organisation (SADPO), the Clay Brick Association and ASPASA. The JEMD supports its members with a comprehensive programme of work that includes policy lobbying, stakeholder engagement, hosting webinars, information dissemination, research and mentorship.

South Africa’s Exploration Plan, released in 2022, set an ambitious target of raising South Africa’s share of global exploration dollars from below 1%, where is presently sits, to 5% in five years’ time.

The question, however, is whether the plan is being implemented and, if so, how far it has progressed.

To unpack this question a team of experts will examine progress to date. The presenters and panellists include:

  • Mosa Mabuza - Council for Geosciences CEO
  • Asinne Tshibududze - Specialist Scientist at the Council for Geoscience
  • Errol Smart - Orion Minerals CEO
  • Ondela Hlwati - Account Manager: Partnership and Programmes for the IDC
  • Botlhale Seageng - Minerals Promotion Head at the DMRE
  • Joshua Kilani - Geological Society of SA
  • Samual Mokorosi – Head of Origination and Deals at the JSE

Time: 9 – 12 am
