ERM Insights from Mining on Top: Africa - London Summit 2014

17 July 2014

It is estimated that the African continent holds over 30% of the world's mineral reserves and includes some of the world's top mineral producing countries. The Mining on Top Africa Summit was held over 4 days in Westminster, London in June. Just under 500 delegates from 37 countries heard from 86 speakers, with a focus upon how to overcome some of the challenges in African Mining and how to gain a better understanding of the infrastructure investment needs of the region.

The conference programme was packed with presentations, panel discussions, roundtable sessions and evening events. Mining on Top, along with the Commonwealth Business Council and UK Trade & Investment, brought together African government ministers and representatives from 13 countries, investors, service providers, civil society and the mining community. ERM attended, delivered presentations and led panel discussions on a range of topics, from infrastructure and water challenges, to environment, biodiversity and other mining risks. This document provides a summary of the key insights from the conference.
