    The Future of Mining in South Africa Book Launch

    Venue: CSIR ICC Emerald Room, Pretoria

     December 12 2018

    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 December 2018

    Time: 8h30 for 9h00 – 12h00

    Venue: CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria
