The 6th Africa Mineral Services & Safety Workshop


The continent produces more than 60 metal and mineral products and is a major producer of some of the world’s most important minerals and metals including gold, platinum group element (PGE’s), diamonds, uranium, manganese, chromium, nickel, bauxite and cobalt, copper, lead and zinc.

Africa hosts about 30% of the planet's mineral reserves, including 40% of gold, 60% of cobalt and 90% of the world's platinum group metals (PGM) reserves.  These facts give the continent an important and strategic place to explore for mineral opportunities.

The increase in exploration and mine development in Africa has been primarily focused on gold and diamond exploration. With the improving of base metal prices, this sector is experiencing an increase in activities.
