Font size: -+

The Minister of Science and Technology, Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane, will launch the Mandela Mining Precinct, one of the outcomes of Mining Phakisa.
The Mining Precinct aims to support local innovation to provide technological solutions to the challenges faced by the mining industry in South Africa, including mineworkers' health and safety.
The institution, named after former President Nelson Mandela, will help to position mining as a core driver of world-class technological and manufacturing capabilities for the development of the economy.
The event will also see the launch of the Mining Equipment Manufacturers of South Africa (MEMSA), a mining equipment-focused organisation that aims to position South Africa's mining capital goods manufacturers as globally competitive, innovative, dynamic and transformative. An exhibition will be held to showcase some of the equipment.
The Mandela Mining Precinct is a collaboration between the DST, through its entity the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), the Minerals Council South Africa (previously the Chamber of Mines), and the Universities of Johannesburg, Pretoria and the Witwatersrand.
The media are invited as follows:
Date:        Friday, 14 September 2018
