Mining players ask burning questions

Posted by Talitha Hlaka on 31 July 2017 12:45 PM SAST

A group of mining players, engage on the uncertaity within the industry they are in. 

A few questions and queries arise from the floor as we get into the agenda of the day: 

  • Current uncertainties due to government matters 
  • Some stakeholders much ahead than others within government, private sectors, organised labour, communities etc. 
  • Resource nationalism - what else; what more can we get out of mining; how do we explain the future to others.  
  • Price pressure on mining commodities
  • Government regulations an issue. What new regulations to expect tomorrow 
  • Consumption packages have changed - Industry 4.0 
  • Will SA & Zim align; Mineral beneficiation 
  • Jobs are not growing in mining due to automation 
  • Price pressure on mining will likely continue - commodity price stay low 
  • How to think long term given the uncertainty
