African Mining Indaba is the world’s largest gathering of mining’s most influential stakeholders and decision-makers vested in African mining. The event has recently been attracting in excess of 7,000 individuals representing more than 2,000 international companies from over 100 countries. In addition, over 30 African and non-African government delegations will be participating. This is where the world connects with African mining.

Global professionals including key mining analysts, fund managers, investment specialists, and governments clearly define Mining Indaba as their preferred venue for obtaining the most current economic and mining developments from the world’s leading experts on African mining. It is held annually at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in Cape Town, South Africa.


Several World Gold Council Member companies will be present and active at Indaba and, as the market development organisation for the gold industry, the World Gold Council is pleased to be a sponsor and participant at this important industry event.

The World Gold Council’s role is to stimulate and sustain demand for gold and we do this by:

  • providing research and insights into the international gold markets, helping people to better understand the wealth preservation qualities of gold and its role in meeting the social and environmental needs of society, today and tomorrow
  • in collaboration with partners, intervening to deliver solutions and create new markets, which increase and sustain the demand for gold.
  • working with our members and key market participants to increase transparency and trust in the supply chain and contribute to a sustainable and vibrant industry on both the supply and demand side.
