About Mining Indaba
Natural Resources Canada, Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada and the Canadian Council on Africa invite you to join Mining Indaba, Africa’s largest mining event. For 20 years, investing in African mining Indaba along with its partners in Africa have channeled billions of dollars of foreign investment into the mining value chain. Mining Indaba is the world’s largest gathering of mining’s most influential stakeholders and decision-makers in African mining.
Network with key decision-makers from the Canadian Government including: Canadian Heads of Mission to Africa and Trade Commissioners from Africa, Export Development Canada, Natural Resources Canada, and Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada.
About the Canada Pavilion

In 2013, over 7,800 of the most (internationally-diversified) and influential professionals in African mining attended Mining Indaba. Since 2000, the Canada Pavilion has been a key anchor booth at this most prestigious event. Last year, over 60 Canadian mining companies attended the Canada Pavilion.

Africa’s rich endowment of natural resources is attracting foreign investment and the mineral sector is playing a significant role in the economies of many African nations.

Since 2000, Canadian mining companies have increased substantially their mineral extraction and exploration activities in Africa.

According to Natural Resources Canada, in 2012 155 Canadian companies held over $20 billion in mining assets in 36 African countries. Canadian firms were most active in East Africa, with $10 billion on the ground in 2012.
Canada’s presence in the Global resource sector, including Africa, extends well beyond mineral exploration activity. Some 2500 Canadian equipment and service suppliers provide expertise to the industry, including hundreds of consulting, engineering, environmental, legal and financial companies.

According to a December 2012 report drafted by the Toronto Stock Exchange, during the first nine months of 2012, 89% of all global mining equity financing was completed on the TSX and TSX Venture. Approximately 300 mining companies are doing business in Africa with more than 50% of those being Canadian companies that are listed on the TSX.
