Toronto, Ontario


We are pleased to be a partner in Chamber Grand Sponsor MineAfrica's "Zimbabwe is Mining" seminar taking place on June 6, 2018 in Toronto.


Zimbabwe has new investor friendly, transparent mining policies, foreign investment incentives, and a wealth of untapped mineral opportunities in platinum (second largest in the world), lithium (fifth largest in the world) chrome, diamonds, gold, coal, nickel, and more.  The mining sector is currently only producing at 10% of its potential and needs $11 billion in investment to modernize, creating an incredible opportunity for investors.

Learn more about specific investment opportunities in exploration, brownfield and operating projects and meet Zimbabwe's mining industry leaders including Winston Chitando, Minister of Mines and Mining Development, Dr. S. B. Moyo, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, and Batirai Manhando, President, Zimbabwe Chamber of Mines.
