Working Group
PUBLIC PROFILE

Key issues and take outs

Posted by Talitha Hlaka on 31 July 2017 4:20 PM SAST

Key issues of the day recognised as follows: 

1. The issue of new technology & mining efficiency

2. How industrialisation could be changing

3. Social licence - how can this change?

4. Regional integration of mining 

The goup decided to further break into two groups and tackle the two takeouts:

How industrialisation could be changing;

  • Energy - dramatic shift
  • New tech in mining, also potential in other resources that can make up opportunities (coal - battery)
  • The future of mobile apps - youth opportunities
  • Future leadership - an ongoing discussion on whats coming vs dealing with it as it arise. 

 Regional integration in mining; 

  • Government lobbying 
  • Local investment needed. Results in substitutes for minerals 
  • Compliance with international standards can help integration
  • Value chains at regional level 
  • Solution: better info sharing system
