It is our expectation that the portal will provide you with the strategic procurement opportunities in the mining industry. Whilst the mining industry has over the years endeavored to spawn the local manufacturing of inputs, the general impression is that the mining industry is an enclave with minimum linkages with the non-mineral economy.
However, the Chamber and its member companies have at various times taken voluntary initiatives to promote in-country expenditure on mining inputs. These range from fabrication of critical components of plant, machinery & equipment, engineering services, physical inputs such as grinding media as well as power and fuel. Significantly, the overriding rationale for these initiatives is principally business driven. In other words, the mining industry has found it economically expedient to spawn the local sourcing of these inputs.
