South African presence at DRC Mining Week in Lubumbashi indicates strong interest in DRC mining sector1200+ mining pros to gather for mining conference and expo (June 15, 2017)
The SACEEC is a public/private partnership between the capital equipment industry and the South African Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) and currently services more than 140 member companies in manufacturing and allied services, representing a major proportion of the capital equipment industry in South Africa.
According to Mr Bruggeman: "the DRC is potentially one of the richest mining countries in Africa. The country was the world's fourth largest producer of industrial diamonds during the 1980s, and diamonds continue to dominate exports, accounting for nearly half of exports."
He says Lubumbashi, where the DRC Mining Week is taking place, "is the second largest city in the DRC and sets the stage for a business-to-business forum of facilitated sessions and meetings with key stakeholders. The SACEEC will also be looking at establishing a business centre in Lubumbashi to assist South African companies doing business in the country."
South African companies at DRC Mining Week include:
SACEEC members as part of the SA National Pavilion:
- AZMET ?? Engineering Services
- AZ-Armaturen ?? Lubricating Plug Valve and Sampling Valves

DRC Mining Week
Around 1200 mining professionals are expected to gather for the practical annual mining and industrial expo again as the award-winning DRC Mining Week conference and exhibition returns to Lubumbashi, in the heart of the DRC's mining hub, from 23-24 June. While retaining its main focus on mining, the event will also broaden its scope to include a focus on related and complementary sectors such as agriculture, energy and construction.
