The Chamber of Mines expects a record of 194 stands at this year’s Mining Expo to take place mid-May compared to the 150 stands divided over 107 exhibitors in 2013.
The Chamber of Mines Chief Executive Officer, Veston Malango said as in the previous years, renowned mining companies such as Namdeb, B2Gold and Rossing will be represented.
He added that the Expo is an important opportunity for the growing mining services industry to showcase their business and get together with clients.
“The event presents an ideal opportunity to those who wish to network with and within the industry and make face-to-face contact to identify new business prospects, or enhance existing ones,” said Malango.
Malango added that the Mining Conference to be held on the side-lines will focus on the theme ‘Mining Industry: A catalyst for Vision 2030’ and will include presentations on new projects such as Otjikoto Gold Mine, Husab Uranium Mine and Tschudi Copper Mine.
“Looking specifically at the future of mining in Namibia, the conference will also focus on vital issues such as value addition, power supply, women in mining and mining safety. There will also be sessions on the zinc and nuclear fuel industries,” said Malango.
Due to the past three success stories of the biennial Mining Expos, the Chamber of Mines decided to make this event an annual highlight for the country.
The expo is a way for the Namibian mining industry to get recognition; it also brings companies, suppliers, stakeholders and investors together.
