Working Together to Reenergize the South African Mining Industry

Hans Kuipers Dawie Scholtz Wybren Bosma Johann van Eeden

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.
