The Future of Mining in Africa

Navigating a Revolution

The rapid advance of mining digitalisation, coupled with regulatory changes, will change the way that African mines operate and require careful consideration of the impact of those changes to mining stakeholders.

Key takeouts from this report

Deloitte sees three interacting domains of change that will shape the future of mining:

  1. Emergent opportunities from 4IR for mining companies, including what a digital mine will look like and the future of working at a digitally-enabled mine
  2. Regulatory shifts in African mining, and the actions that this regulation incentivises.
  3. Impacts that transitioning to a digital mine will have on the socio-economic wellbeing of broader mining communities as well as the cyber risks that this transition entails
