The Alternative Mining Indaba is held annually in Cape Town, leading the dialogue between communities from across the African continent and the mining sector.

In the first virtual Alternative Mining Indaba, Leslie Cairns, Head of Investment at dcc Africa, joined the 21st panel session and sat alongside Dr Janet Munakamwe (Wits Mining Institute) and Sandile Nombeni (360 Degrees Environmental Organisation) to address the topic of small-scale mining.

Leslie Cairns led the conversation from a private-sector perspective, contributing to the panel by exploring some of the plans that dcc Gold is leading in Tanzania and the work dcc Gold will be leading with artisanal and small-scale mining communities.
