Mining business opportunities
in South Africa

Mineral wealth plays a pivotal role in South Africa’s socio-economic development. As one of the most mineral rich countries in the world, there are many mining business opportunities to be found in South Africa.

South Africa's total reserves remain some of the world's most valuable, with an estimated worth of R20.3-trillion ($2.5-trillion). Overall, South Africa is estimated to have the world's fifth-largest mining sector in terms of GDP value.

Mining in South Africa is a business that is over 130 years old. The rest of Africa’s mining is still in its infancy. South Africa is famous for its mineral reserves, with a wide spread of available resources.

There are hundreds of mining projects in South Africa and our resources are gaining increasing importance in a world fuelled by commodity consumption - bauxite, coal, copper, cobalt, gold, diamonds, platinum, zinc, uranium, phosphate, gas, and iron ore.

Many important mining companies have operations in the region and in South Africa. Read more about mining companies in South Africa here.
