African Sun Mining recently took part in one of the country’s most prestigious junior mining events on the industry calendar – the Junior Mining and Exploration Summit. The event, which was held at the Forum in Johannesburg in November last year, attracted some of the country’s leading junior mining companies, together with industry decision-makers and opinion-formers. The theme of the conference was developed in recognition of the need to shape the future of the mining industry in South Africa, by facilitating a better understanding of the opportunities available to junior miners.

African Sun Mining was not only a corporate sponsor of the conference, hosting one of the delegate luncheons, but also participated on the speaker podium. Delegates at the event were addressed in two of the conference plenary sessions by the company’s directors - one by Paul Khosolo, Managing Director, and the other by Jonathan Leso, Executive Director. Both sessions were well received by those in attendance. African Sun Mining also showcased the company’s activities and services to delegates through its exhibition stand at the event, with delegates and speakers meeting with the directors to discuss new business opportunities and to learn more about the company’s projects and business offerings.

The conference provided a good introductory platform for the team at African Sun Mining as it brought together key stakeholders and experts to discuss emerging issues and trends in the mining sector, and created a forum in which to discuss strategies necessary to move the industry forward. It also provided a platform from which delegates could ask questions, hear insights, and keep up to date with the latest investor information, regulatory requirements, and innovations in the mining sector in South Africa and on the African continent. For a new corporate brand in the mining sector, the event created the ideal opportunity at which to raise awareness of the African Sun Mining brand, and to provide a thought leader platform for the company’s leadership team.
