Working Together to Reenergize the South African Mining Industry
South Africa’s mining industry has been in decline for the best part of 2 decades. Remaining deposits grow ever deeper, and more expensive, to extract. The industry faces a challenging and at times uncertain policy environment. So BCG worked with the South African authorities and South African mining industry to develop new approaches for growth in the industry. We propose a range of interventions to increase competitiveness, attract investment, encourage exploration and kick-start job growth in the sector.
Our projects, covering a wide spectrum of industry sectors, are the product of collaboration with a range of major national and multinational organizations. Our aim is clear: to create a positive economic, social, and environmental impact on the continent.
South Africa is, quite literally, running out of water. By modeling potential scenarios, governments and key water users can detect when we may be heading toward a certain future and stay ahead of the curve.
