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.
Date: Wednesday, 12
Time: 8h30 for 9h00 – 12h00
International Convention Centre, Pretoria
