Mining Week tone is good news for DRC - SRK

A positive mood and good attendance at last months' DRC Mining Week 2019 held in Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo, is a promising sign for the country's prospects, according to Susa Maleba, SRK Consulting DRC country manager and mining engineer.

Notwithstanding the country's many challenges ahead, the new mining legislation was generally felt to be a positive contribution for mining, said Jaco van Graan, SRK principal mining engineer — not least because of how it promotes responsible and sustainable mining practices. He said gold prospects were also raising the value of the local sector.
