Mining Investment Africa (, West Africa’s leading international Mining Conference, is deeply honoured to announce that Dr Kayode Fayemi, Nigeria’s Minister for Mines and Steel Development, will deliver the opening keynote address on 15 May about unlocking the mining potential of Nigeria. This will be the first time Mining Investment Africa has welcomed Minister Fayemi to this global mining event which will be held in Abuja from 15-17 May.
Mining Investment Africa was first launched in Nigeria in 2016 by the organiser Spire Events (Singapore). This conference is part of a global Mining Investment Conference Series which connects miners with investors and service providers whilst highlighting mining opportunities in the host country/region. With the Nigerian government’s announcement of the roadmap to align the country’s mining sector to global best practices to improve its competitiveness, 2017 will be a crucial year for the Nigerian and regional West African mining industry.
