Mining Indaba officially opens market trading on LSE

Investing in African Mining Indaba officially opened trading on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) this morning, with Mining Indaba’s 25th anniversary event in Cape Town less than a month away.

The market was opened by Mark Shashoua, CEO of ITE Group plc, which acquired Mining Indaba for around £30 million in October as part of its strategy to build a portfolio of world-class, large scale events.

“I am delighted to be opening the LSE today with the Mining Indaba team, which ITE Group recently acquired, and with our industry partners and friends,” said Shashoua.

“Mining Indaba is a fantastic event that is dedicated to developing the mining industry across the African continent and it also further cements our partnership with the LSE Group.”

The proceedings were also attended by members of the Mining Indaba team, including managing director Alex Grose, who was presented with a plaque to commemorate the opening of the market.

“This ceremony further cements our partnership with the LSE Group, supporting our main aim of helping mining companies access capital,” said Grose.

“Mining Indaba is celebrating a huge milestone this year – our 25th anniversary. The last two years have seen us realign the event with our clients’ needs, many of whom are listed on the LSE, with a laser sharp focus on driving investment.

“It’s great to be a part of this auspicious event and we look forward to continuing to drive capital into the African mining sector in February.”
