Book Launch

The Future of Mining in South Africa

12 December 2018

CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria

9:00 am - 12:00 am

The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) is pleased to invite you to the launch of its latest publication, The Future of Mining in South Africa: Sunset or Sunrise. The research report is the first of its kind in South Africa and aims to break the fragmentation in the future of mining debates as well as bring the highly contested views into unifying conversations.

The transdisciplinary research report covers twelve chapters probing issues such as the potential of platinum to spur industrialisation; land and dispossession in the platinum belt; the roles of the state and capital in mineral development; mining in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution; the experiences of women in mining in the late 19th century; the history of mineworker organising and lessons for the present; and how to tackle post-mine rehabilitation.
