After a two-years absence because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the 9th Namibian Mining Expo andConference, is scheduled for 31st August and 1st September 2022, under the theme, ‘’Breaking New Frontiers in a Post-Pandemic Era’’.

“The whole Chamber team is gearing up and preparing for what promises to be an exciting and successful Mining Expo Conference at the Windhoek Showgrounds,” said Chamber of Mines CEO Veston Malango.

Malango indicated that this year’s event coincides with an improving outlook for the mining industry supported by a buoyant mineral commodity market, and a fast-paced operating environment that is evolving with rapid technological advancements being made in the mining sector and attributes the enduring success of the mining sector to a collaborative approach between government and the industry.

“The outlook for mining remains as favourable as ever and we are eagerly following a sustained recovery in the price of uranium, and a continued surge in mineral commodity prices as the world transitions to green energy solutions,” said Malango.

The 2022 Mining Expo also offers exhibitors new avenues to market their products and engage with the sector.

“This year, we will introduce a dedicated Suppliers Platform and the Business 2 Business feature, which enables exhibitors to arrange direct meetings with players in the mining sector,” said Malango.

The Chamber also announced that RMB is the official sponsor of the Mining Conference, the cocktail event and the Expo marketing channels that include the B2B and the Supplier’s Platform.

The conference programme will feature speakers from a variety of industry players who are excited to share innovative ways on Breaking New Frontiers in a Post-Pandemic Era covering topics on the resurgence of Namibia’s uranium sector, the re-opening of historic mines, new frontiers of resilience, transitioning Namibia’s mining sector into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, green hydrogen and the catalyst for establishing a sustainable and environmentally responsible phosphate-based industry, among others.
