Responsible mining drives economic development and modern life

"Realising the Mining Sector's potential to help realise the Vision of the NDP" will be the topic under discussion at a breakaway session on Mining, sponsored by Anglo American Platinum at the Second Annual Vision2030 Summit in June.

Topco Media will be hosting the Vision2030 Summit on 8 and 9 June, at the Emperors Palace in Kempton Park, Johannesburg.

In June 2015 Topco Media hosted the successful inaugural Vision 2030 Summit, with the continued support of Minister in the Presidency, Jeff Radebe who has been involved in this initiative for two consecutive years and who will be opening the summit as the official keynote speaker.

“The aim of the Vision 2030 Summit is to provide a platform for members of the Presidency, key government dignitaries and private sector leaders, to share insights, engage and discuss the vision for the National Development Plan. It highlights key aspects around Vision 2030 and how key organisations and individuals can contribute to make it a reality,” said Ryland Fisher, Topco Media Editorial Director.

The moderator for this breakaway session will be May Hermanus, Executive Director of the Natural Resources and Environmental Unit of the CSIR. The panelists for this breakaway session include Roger Baxter, the CEO for the Chamber of Mines, Cuma Limekaya, Partner at KPMG South Africa, Brooks Spector, Associate Editor at The Daily Maverick and Andile Sangqu who is the Executive Director and Executive Head of Anglo American South Africa.

“Anglo American is a global mining business that provides the raw materials essential for economic development and modern life,” said Andile Sangqu. Executive Director of Anglo American SA.

“Our people are at the heart of our business. It is our people who use the latest technologies to find new resources, plan and build our mines and who mine, process and move and market our products – from bulk commodities and base metals to precious metals and diamonds (through De Beers) – to our customers around the world,” he said.

“Our portfolio of products spans the economic development cycle and, as a responsible miner, we are the custodians of precious resources. We work together with our key partners and stakeholders to unlock the long-term value that those resources represent for our shareholders, but also for the communities and countries in which we operate – creating sustainable value and making a real difference,” said Sangqu.

“We have the values, the skills and the knowledge to drive a successful, responsible company. And by keeping our promises, we continue to build trust with communities, governments, suppliers and everyone whose lives we touch,” he said.

Anyone interested in responsible mining is encouraged to attend this breakaway session.
