Speaking Invitation

Dear Sir,
We are following up on our earlier invitation to you or a senior executive from your organisation to speak at the Mining Report – Zimbabwe Mining Investment Conference 2017 on the 21st and 22nd November 2017 at a 5 Star Meikles Hotel in Harare , Zimbabwe

This goal of the conference is to promote investment into the sector and to very also very importantly for all stakeholders to discuss opportunities and challenges in Zimbabwe’s mining and chart a way to growth and success.Zimbabwe’s mining sector has great potential for growth with the potential to attract USD$12 Billion over the next 5 years if the right policies are implemented. The Government is committed to creating mutually beneficial policies and conditions for the sector’s growth.

An important purpose of this Conference is to showcase and promote investment opportunities in Zimbabwe’s mining companies as well as highlighting new projects coming online such as the various lithium , gold and chrome projects.

The Conference is being held at a time of economic challenges within Zimbabwe and the objective is not to conflate these with Zimbabwe’s mining sector and to urge investors to take a medium term to long term view on Zimbabwe’s mining sector, mining itself being a long term industry. The present economic challenges offer investors a great opportunity to invest and partner with promising Zimbabwean companies by investing now at distressed pricing to benefit on the tremendous upside in the medium to long term.
Investors will learn about the existing and planned projects as well as meet with senior executives from various leading mining companies and Government stakeholders.
