South Africa needs a competitive mining industry for its sustainable economic development. The mining industry is the foundation on which the economy was built and it is imperative that the mining industry grows its contribution so that the country can achieve the objectives of the National Development Plan. Reducing poverty and inequality in South Africa requires current jobs to be sustained and the creation of new sustainable jobs. This is the fundamental objective of the WMI, which objective calls for a committed, collaborative mining sector with strong government support.
The Wits Mining Institute, along with several other Centres of Excellence, reside in the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment.
