Although Botswana’s mining is less buoyant than it was before the world credit crunch, there are still prospects for growth.

In the light of this positive mining outlook, Electra Mining Africa 2013 exhibition will be held in Botswana early next month.

Organizers of the mining, industrial and power generation show say Botswana’s well developed mining industry makes the country a natural choice for the expansion of Electra Mining Africa.

The exhibition will be launched at the Gaborone’s Fairgrounds Holdings from September 3 – 5th.

“It is an ideal place to network with key decision makers, make valuable business connections, discover the latest in technology developments and find out the latest new products, equipment and services,” said the Electra Mining Africa spokesperson, Caroline Tainton.

Responding to a questionnaire, Tainton further said that Botswana’s commercial hub of Gaborone is not only an ideal location for the local visitors from within the country but also enables easy access for those from South Africa and other surrounding African mining nations.

The Ministry of Minerals, Energy and Water Resources has endorsed Electra Mining Botswana exhibition, with the recommendation that stakeholders support the show to help diversify Botswana’s mining portfolio.
