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.
