Increasing taxes, changing mining codes and power are impacting returns for mining companies and institutional investors. The industry continually needs to engage in dialogue to overcome these obstacles to growth and increased return on investment.
For the first time ever, the organisers of Mines and Money events will be holding a regional focused Central and East Africa Mining Investment Summit in London.

There is now relative political stability but major uncertainties regarding investment policies and mining rights. The conference will focus on these issues." - Wiseman Nkhulu, Board Director and Chairman of Audit and Governance Committee, Member - Risk Management and Sustainability Committees, AngloGold Ashanti, South Africa
