Mantashe highlights importance and opportunity of mining in Africa

South African Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe has stressed the need for mining to be used to achieve wider economic development across Africa. He was delivering one of the keynote addresses on the first day of the Mining Indaba 2022 conference in Cape Town. “We must beneficiate our minerals here, in our continent,” he highlighted. Beneficiation would ensure that Africa would achieve full ownership of the complete value chains of the minerals mined across the continent.
