Media

Every week we reach hundreds of thousands of people through placing arguments in the media in support of the principles we stand for.

Technology is only one part of what mining needs - Bizcommunity

24 July 2019 - The tech-heavy idea of modernisation might be able to postpone the end in gold and underground platinum mining, but it alone is no panacea. A true revival of mining in South Africa hinges most of all on reforming the enabling environment. That’s a much bigger task.
