The Junior Indaba 2024

The Junior Indaba, for explorers, developers and investors in junior mining, is brought to you by Resources 4 Africa, the organisers of the Joburg Indaba.

Resources 4 Africa is pleased to announce the 10th edition of its annual Junior Indaba, taking place on 21st & 22nd May 2024 in Johannesburg.

The Junior Indaba is a popular meeting place for junior miners and is enjoyed by all for its incisive, informative and frank discussions tackling the challenges of, and opportunities for, junior mining and exploration in South Africa and elsewhere in Africa.

Discussions will be framed within the global geopolitical, socio-economic and energy shifts taking place and their impact on junior mining. Topics under discussion will include the demand for critical metals, the global outlook for commodities, investors’ perspectives on junior mining projects, ESG considerations and much, much more.

Attend and join in the all-important conversations which will address questions such as:
  • What can be done to drive exploration in South Africa?
  • What are the latest updates on the recently announced South African cadastral system?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities for junior miners and explorers in the rest of Africa?
  • How can junior miners navigate ESG requirements, community and climate change concerns?
  • What are investors looking for when considering African junior mining projects?
  • What is the role of junior miners in meeting the demand for critical minerals and metals?
  • How are junior coal producers managing to succeed in a challenging market?
  • What lessons can be learned from successful junior miners who are already operating in SA and beyond?

And much more…

Popular features over the two days include Myth Busters and a showcase of presentations from junior miners across the continent. The speaker line-up will include junior producers, investors, government, legal and industry experts.
