Energy and Mines Africa Virtual Summit, May 4-6 

Tapping the enormous potential for renewables in African mines is the key focus of the Energy and Mines Africa Virtual Summit.

The last 18 months have witnessed a significant uptick in the number of announcements of energy projects for mines. There is also a growing realization amongst the continent’s miners, regulators, governments and financiers that an energy shift is an inevitable result of growing domestic and international pressure to decarbonize mining, contain costs and improve energy security.

Among the mining presenters confirmed to speak are representatives from B2Gold, Ivanhoe Mines, Trevali, African Gold Group, Newmont, Giyani Metals, Gold Fields South Africa, Perseus Mining, Orion Minerals, Syrah Resources, Pan African Resources, AngloGold Ashanti, Impala Platinum, De Beers Group, Sibanye-Stillwater, RIDA Group, Centamin, and Resolute Mining.
