Mining Review Africa is proud to present to you the latest edition of its annual publication – Mining Elites in Africa 2021 – which recognises the leaders and projects truly making a difference in the African mining sector.

2020 was a difficult period for the mining industry, but in honour of maintaining the momentum built through Mining Elites in Africa over the past six years, the 2021 edition pays tribute to projects and key areas of mining that are making a difference – to their own businesses, the regions in which they operate, all stakeholders and the greater economies.

Leadership Profiles

These are industry influencers who are innovative in their leadership approaches and strategies to improve the greater mining and minerals value chains on a regional level. These leaders are contributing to the progress of mining, or are taking the role of facilitator in advancing the industry through their contributions to legislation in any country in Africa. They are a reflection of responsible corporate citizens and may be the contributing factor to helping a mining operation secure finance. Through their position they are setting benchmarks in their fields.

The 2021 categories include – making a difference in:

  • Exploration
  • Greenfields project development
  • Brownfields expansion
  • Stay-in-business strategies
  • Research and academic breakthroughs
  • ESG (Environment, Social & Governance) contributions
  • Building sustainable communities
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Health & safety
  • Power design and delivery
  • Digitalisation and automation technologies
