Report | PanAfGeo at Mining Indaba 2019: Cape Town, South Africa, 4-7 Feb 2019


The PanAfGeo project renovated its participation to the Mining Indaba 2019 event, celebrating its success at the event for the 4th time since 2016. In addition, PanAfGeo showed active participation at the various events of the EU Delegation in South Africa for the duration of the week.

The Head of the EU Delegation for South Africa, several ambassadors (France, Ethiopia) and OAGS Directors (e.g. Senegal, Togo, Burkina Faso, Mauritania, Mozambique, DRC, Côte d’Ivoire) visited the PanAfGeo booth. Further, PanAfGeo would like to thank Mr. Sean Finlay, for arranging a productive discussion with the GSI and African Development Bank.

The PanAfGeo project participated in the following panel discussions:
• “The EU’s Normative Role in African Extractives Governance” presentation at SAIIA;
• “Mine Closure and Rehabilitation and the EU” of the Alternative Mining Indaba
• “Innovations in mine closure good practice guidance” panel of ICMM, IGF and the World Bank

The panel discussions were particularly relevant for PanAfGeo as it is aiming to strengthen skills of African geological surveys, to support governments to better develop sustainable and responsible mining activities.
