"Innovation in financing mining projects in Africa"

The mining landscape in which we operate has become increasingly volatile and competitive
over the last 2 years, making traditional methods of raising capital, managing costs and
controlling cash flows, ineffective for a number of organisations.

In Africa especially, mining organisations are currently experiencing challenges with unstable
commodity pricing and access to funding. To this end, innovation in sourcing capital is slowly
becoming the key solution to overcome this growing issue.

Join us to hear our experienced panel members discuss new and innovative ways of sourcing
funding in the changing market, with insight into funding agreements and their intricate
details. The panel members will also explore alternative financing solutions to mitigate high
operation costs and better manage cash flows.
