This edition of Mining Review Africa is definitely worth celebrating! It focuses on Central Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in particular, which despite its negative perception is quickly becoming one of the most buoyant mining countries in Africa.
It is with great sadness that I am writing to tell our readers that a great industry role model has passed away. Bob Stephen, Victoria Stephen’s father and the founder of Mining Review Africa, may no longer be with us and while this is indeed a very sad time for the magazine and everyone who has had the privilege of knowing or working with him, it is also a time to celebrate a great lifetime of achievements.
While many great people continue to play a significant role in ensuring the magazine maintains its leading position, tribute must be paid to Bob for his vision and his ability to take it beyond an initial concept
