As mentioned, the mining industry is a major contributor to the gross domestic product (GDP) of South Africa. It offers job opportunities in a wide spectrum directly and indirectly involved. In the last decade the major mining companies has become international role players with operations on all continents (except Antarctica). This created opportunities for their employees to join these operations and experience foreign cultures. The companies have different employment levels which provide their employees to advance their careers in the company.

The industry also provides opportunities for professionals to set up consultancy businesses that provide companies with their expertise. Other opportunities include agencies for equipment manufactures.

Scholarship Fund

The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy established a Scholarship Trust Fund for students in Mining and Metallurgy at South African tertiary educational Institutions in 2003. The fund holds some reserves for future years in order to smooth the flow of monies to the Institutions. Considerable funding has come from the SAIMM itself as it has contributed R220 000 each year; but significant funds have also been donated by individuals in the minerals and metals industry or by the smaller companies operating in the industry.
