Botswana is one of the fastest growing economies in Africa and a significant driver is it’s buoyant mining sector. President Ian Khama’s legacy of developing infrastructure combined with the country’s abundance of resources, particularly diamonds, has seen strong growth in exploration drilling in the last decade or so – providing a boost to the overall economy. The improved transport and telecommunication networks make it easier for companies to explore far flung locations and the established mines such as Orapa and Jwaneng are entering new cuts – all leading to a robust mining sector.

This issue is highlighting different players throughout the mining value chain in Botswana. We have an exclusive interview with Botswana Chamber of Mines CEO Charles Siwawa, we speak to miners in the shape of Tlou Energy and Mount Burgess Mining as well as contractors Atlas Copco and Stefanutti Stocks.

Further on we delve into the current situation in Tanzania with President John Magufuli’s new mining laws and the impact they could have on both foreign and domestic firms. We speak to Vanessa Guthrie in her role as chair of the Minerals Council of Australia to find out the key challenges facing mining on a national level.
