"Making a difference in mining industry" celebrated in Mining Elites in Africa

By: Mining Elites in Africa
CAPE TOWN, South Africa - Jan. 29, 2021 - PRLog -- The African mining industry rose to the occasion during 2020 with many companies implementing pro-active responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, while others impressed with innovative technological feats that not only assisted in the longevity of their operations, but also to their contribution to the local communities.

Not only focusing on the bottom line but also incorporating softer strategic goals clearly paid off, says Laura-Jane Cornish, Editor-in-Chief of Mining Review Africa, leading magazine and digital platform in the African mining industry and the annual edition of Mining Elites in Africa, which launched this week.

"ESG principles"
"This year Mining Elites in Africa chose to focus on mining companies who, through an extremely difficult time, have made a difference, for their own sustainability and on an even greater level, to the countries in which they operate and the economies they contribute to."

She adds: "some of the aspects that make this selection of mining projects and people stand out are also linked to the ESG principals of environment, social, and governance, which have become a driving factor for the mining industry."

A 128-page glossy edition available in print and electronic format, it features dozens of exclusive leadership profiles with industry pioneers and project updates.
