Paterson Simons was in attendance at the 2024 Investing in African Mining Indaba held in Cape Town from February 5th to 8th. The Mining Indaba is a premier event dedicated to advancing the capitalization and development of mining ventures across Africa.

We experienced a very positive and optimistic outlook from attendees at the Indaba. The general mood amongst attendees was receptive and forward looking, and we share this sense of optimism in the industry for the upcoming year and beyond!

Therefore, it is no surprise to us that this 30th edition of the Indaba was one of the most successful Mining Indabas to date, boasting a record attendance of 11,000 delegates from 126 countries.

As one of the largest annual gatherings in the mining industry, the event offers a comprehensive view of the African mining landscape, uniting visionaries and innovators from various sectors of the value chain. Moreover, the Mining Indaba remains committed to supporting education, career advancement, sustainable development, and other vital initiatives across the continent.

Paterson Simons partner with some of West Africa’s biggest mining operations, supplying cranes, forklifts and heavy lifting equipment and services across the region – under any circumstances.

Our expertise extends to mine sites in Ghana, Senegal, Nigeria, Mauritania, Mali, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso and Guinea Republic where our responsive sales, spares, and service departments ensure uninterrupted operations under challenging conditions. We deliver, commission, and maintain cranes, forklifts, and heavy lifting equipment to factory standards, regardless of location, earning the trust of mining clients who rely on our services to keep their operations running smoothly.

We are proud to represent leading global brands such as Konecranes, Manitowoc, Manitou, Grove, and Franna in the West African mining sector, further solidifying our commitment to excellence and reliability.

We extend our gratitude to the organizers of the Indaba for orchestrating another successful event, and we look forward to a promising future for mining in Africa!
