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 Organization (SADPO) and the Clay Brick Association. The JEMD supports its members with a comprehensive programme of work that includes policy lobbying, stakeholder engagement, hosting Webinars, information dissemination, research, and mentorship.

Junior Mining and Exploration has been identified as key components in developing and driving the overall mining sector. The release of the Exploration Strategy and Implementation Plan by the DMRE in April 2022 speaks to the need for exploration to be increased to 5% of all global exploration dollars within the next five-year period.
