Press Release – February 2017
This conference seeks to draw international investors to Nigeria to explore the mining opportunities in the country and the region.
With the recent Nigerian government announcement in end 2016 about a new roadmap for $5bn mining investment over the next 10 years, 2017 will be an important juncture for the mining industry in Nigeria and the entire West African region. Mining Investment Africa thus provides an ideal platform for miners, investors, government officials and service providers riding this wave of renewed confidence and optimism to forge new business opportunities and partnerships.
Mining Investment Africa debuted in Nigeria in 2016 and attracted over 150 international and local delegates, with positive feedback from the attendees.

It was a pleasure to be a part of this event.’ Philip Andrews, Director at Pridolian Natural Resources Advisory, said ‘Congratulations for a successful mining conference in these challenging times’.
