Africa Mining Forum to connect the right projects with the right financiers in Kigali in NOvember
By: Africa Mining Forum
This exciting new mining investment platform has its roots in the very successful Kenya Mining Forum, which ran for three consecutive years in Nairobi and then evolved into the East & Central Africa Mining Forum, which took place in Kigali last year, hosted by the Rwanda Mines, Petroleum and Gas Board (RMB).
The 2019 edition attracted strong regional, pan-African and global representation, from both government and private sectors; coming from the African Union, Botswana, DRC, South Sudan, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Tanzania. Says Delagneau: "having been active in this region for quite a few years now and following extensive consultations with a wide range of stakeholders in the industry, it is abundantly clear to us that juniors and mid cap companies, particularly at the exploration stage, are eager to have more access to investment and finance opportunities. Furthermore, Sub Saharan Africa's immense mining potential in key regions (ie. East and Central Africa will be at the heart of the debates) forms a particularly compelling business case to take this event to a continental scale."
"Africa Mining Forum is a premium mining investment tool," says Delagneau, "providing a unique opportunity for junior miners and mid cap companies seeking investment in African emerging as well as mature mining markets. We offer a networking platform in Africa's investment hub for hundreds of executives and decisions makers eager to engage with key stakeholders, investors and assets managers to identify promising projects and deploy capital."
Last year's East & Central Africa Mining Forum in Rwanda, which was opened by the Rwandan Prime Minister, Dr Édouard Ngirente, attracted almost 800 attendees from 45 countries. Some 105 mining houses and exploration companies were represented with 113 expert speakers in the strategic conference, while 28 sponsors showcased their specialist services and technology.
