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.
My recent visit to Northam Platinum’s Booysendal (UG2 North) mine reminded me why I haven’t grown bored with the industry I write about day after day – for more than a decade now. It’s because no two mines are exactly the same and every site visit I’ve made has left a unique impression. I truly believe this having visited many mines across different continents over many years. Honestly, if I think back to some of the mines I have had the pleasure of seeing for myself, they have each offered an experience unlike any other, allowing me to remember each one for its own special reason.
