Celebrating Exceptional Individuals who have made Extraordinary contribution to Mining in Africa. The African Mining Hall of Fame recognizes outstanding achievement in the mining industry, celebrates individual leadership and aims to inspire future generations in mining. Mining is a global industry and Africa has approximately 30 percent of the earth’s known mineral resources fuelling the green, high tech and urban 21st century economy. Conceptualized in 2013, the Africa Mining Hall of Fame was established in 2021 to become an enduring source of information that shares the significant contributions of individuals who shaped the continent’s contribution to the global mining industry. The African Mining Hall of Fame recognizes outstanding achievements in Africa’s natural resource space, and celebrates individual leadership that has helped a sustainable, global mineral development value chain in a way that inspires the future generations in the industry.
