Mining Indaba Ministerial Symposium


The Ministerial Symposium is the only event on the African continent that engages the most prominent Mining CEOs, African Mining Ministers and the major industry organisations and multilaterals such as the World Bank Group, United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, Chamber of Mines South Africa and the African Development Bank. As such it creates an exclusive platform for an open dialogue among the above parties that ultimately results in a stronger Public-Private Cooperation and the highest level of developmental planning.

The Ministerial Symposium takes place on Sunday and sets the scene for the rest of the Mining Indaba event. It is attended by the top 100 mining company and government leaders registered for the main Mining Indaba conference and if you would like to reserve a place on the guest list we encourage you to register your interest by filling in the accreditation form linked below.
