The South Africa Mining Hall of Fame honours individuals who have shown exceptional leadership in the South African mining industry.
“As an industry, we know too well our unique legacy and challenges and believe we can do more to celebrate the significant progress that has been made.
We would therefore like to recognise and celebrate key players in our industry, role models that young South Africans can look up to,” explains chair of Joburg Mining Indaba, Bernard Swanepoel.
“We unanimously chose to nominate Marius Kloppers as an outstanding individual, who has contributed to the mining industry’s development over many years; improving the Australian-South African axis, driving unmatched growth and reshaping the mining landscape,” explains Swanepoel.
Kloppers used the opportunity to address the need for governments and mining companies to agree on shared interests and the need for a broad view on value to ensure future growth.
