SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR PARTNERS AND SPONSORS!

The first day of the conference provides a platform to disrupt existing patterns in a mining industry eager for an efficient, prosperous and sustainable future. Expert views from the power and energy sector, agriculture, infrastructure, education, skill training, as well as financing and equipment and the impact on lives of communities will highlight the positive impact natural resource development can have and the ecosystem that mining cultivates. The second day will establish a landscape of the future by connecting companies, suppliers and delegates actively looking to invest, partner and advance business opportunities between Ghana, South Africa and other key countries.

As part of the registration, a Gala Dinner on the evening of day one, a networking cocktail reception, presentations by distinguished industry leaders, a high profile B2B matchmaking program with web platform and Mobile App access as well as all meals and coffee breaks will be included.

At our Gala dinner all participants will gain market insight from a curated list of multiple industry players in the MSTA Canada and CCAfrica network, such as one of Canada’s top ranked and respected journalists – John Ibbitsonm and Official delegations of Chile, Ghana and South Africa providing a larger global business perspective and participation.

We are offering an Early Bird access ticket, where our participants will enjoy a 33% savings, as well as the opportunity to be the first to choose their B2B matchmaking program requests. With limited space available, secure sponsorship, exhibition and speaking roles today!

Notable Key Note Speakers/Attendees:

Fred Stanford President and CEO of Torex Gold Resources; EXPANDE/Fundacion Chile – who are transforming the Chilean mining industry; Executives from various Mining Companies and global decision makers.

The evolution of the mining industry has demonstrated the necessity to rethink current ways of doing business, effectively forming a culture creatively disrupted by technologies and solutions daily. Our Forum offers two days of dialogue addressing essential corporate stewardship, and applicable actions and ideas for implementing successful business endeavors built on partnerships, which will continue to generate immense prospects for accelerated progress in both Canada, Africa and beyond.
