Investing In African Mining Indaba

water shortage measures

As you may know Cape Town is currently experiencing extreme water shortage, so Mining Indaba has been working with our suppliers to minimise our impact on the city’s infrastructure.

We would like to thank Kal Tire for providing bottled water throughout the event. Please try and limit your own water usage throughout the week, as Cape Town is going through this difficult period.

Mining Indaba is also supporting and making a donation to Gift of the Givers, an NGO which is distributing water to communities worse affected by the water crisis. If you would like to make a personal donation to this cause, please visit Stand 1202 in Mining Indaba.


The city of Cape Town has advised all visitors to:
- Wash hands less frequently, instead using hand sanitiser where possible. You will find hand sanitiser in toilets throughout the CTICC.
- Take short, stop-start showers
- Don’t leave the tap running while brushing water
- Only flush when you really need to

We hope that you have a wonderful time in Cape Town, and both the city and Mining Indaba appreaciate your help in trying to implement these water saving measures wherever possible.
