The positive, changing face of the African continent is continuing to attract the lion’s share of global exploration dollars as prospectors zoom in on its untold mineral riches.

Countries which were previously considered no-go areas have attracted a new wave of international investors, explorers and miners wanting to have another look. Striking examples of these are Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mozambique.

The Africa Down Under Conference runs from the 28-30 August 2013 in Perth, Western Australia, and is an event not to be missed for those interested in the opportunities in Africa. Apart from presenting companies, the event will be attended by several African Mines Ministers, business leaders and executives from the mining services industries.

Southern Mapping will be in attendance and we hope to see you there.
