TAKE A LOOK-Miners attend Indaba industry conference
Feb 7 (Reuters) – Mining companies gather this week in Cape Town, South Africa, for the first major industry conference of the year.
The meeting returned to its traditional February time after disruption caused by the pandemic and attracted about 7,500 delegates, organizers say, up from 6,500 last year when the conference was held in May.
A predominant theme is investment in Africa, which has the potential to play a key role in providing minerals for a transition to a low-carbon economy, but is likely to weigh on concerns about high interest rates and failing economies.
