London Stock Exchange Group welcomes Mining Indaba 2019

Investing in African Mining Indaba is the world’s largest mining investment event, which takes place in Cape Town every February. Attracting 6491 attendees, 100s of international investors and over 35 government ministers and heads of state, the event is one of the most important meetings in the world for the mining sector.

The event focuses on three core groups - investors, governments and mining companies to ensure deal-making takes place during the conference. As the event continues to grow the team behind the conference believes in supporting the industry and bringing all stakeholders together, from community groups through to the mining CEOs, to overcome obstacles, such as the social licence to operate and to drive sustainable economic growth.

In 2019, the event celebrates 25 years of being a driving force for investment into mining in Africa.
The market was opened by Mark Shashoua, CEO of ITE Group plc and was attended by Mining Indaba team members and guests.

Mark Shashoua, CEO of ITE Group, commented:
"I am delighted to be opening the LSE today with the Mining Indaba team, which ITE Group recently acquired, and with our industry partners and friends. Our vision is to create the world’s leading portfolio of content-driven, must-attend events, delivering an outstanding experience and ROI for our customers. Mining Indaba is a fantastic event that is dedicated to developing the mining industry across the African continent and it also further cements our partnership with the LSE Group."

Alex Grose, Managing Director, Mining Indaba said:
"Mining Indaba is celebrating a huge milestone this year – our 25th anniversary. The last two years have seen us realign the event with our clients’ needs, many of whom are listed on the LSE, with a laser sharp focus on driving investment. It’s great to be a part of this auspicious event and we look forward to continuing to drive capital into the African mining sector in February."

Mining Indaba’s key partners took part including the World Gold Council, Memery Crystal, ICMM, The World Platinum Investment Council and Brunswick, alongside 2018’s Investment Battlefield winner, Thor Exploration.

Mining Indaba is wholly owned by ITE Group plc, a London Stock Exchange listed company.
