Security planning during strikes to be discussed at the Mining Security & Crisis Management Forum


400x400 Mining bannerThe global Summits organiser, IRN, will host the Mining Security & Crisis Management Forum on the 12th-13th, November 2014 in Cape Town, South Africa.

With confirmed Senior Security Experts from Newmont Mining, De Beers Consolidated Mines, Gemfields PLC, Kinross Gold Corporation, Vale Mozambique, De Beers Namibia, Adamus Resources Ltd, Cullinan Diamond Mine (Petra Diamonds), Gem Diamonds Botswana, Tshipi Borwa Mine, Banro Corporation, Rio Tinto and Debswana Diamond Co., this forum will be the leading platform for mine security experts to meet in an exclusive setting and learn directly from each other’s experiences.

In South Africa, the world’s mining capital and the host country for this timely forum, mine strikes are a major concern for many mining companies. In the event of soured labour relations, security planning must be reinforced to deal with the ensuing disruptions, and even prevent vandalism from disgruntled workers. This key mine security challenge will be addressed in depth over the course of this forum.

The morning of first day will open with a presentation by the Global Security Manager, Compliance and Assurance from AngloGold Ashanti, who will speak on “Illicit trafficking of precious metals and its destabilizing factor in systems of affected countries.” On the morning of the second day there will be a presentation on “Human rights and the security of mines- the application of the voluntary principles” by the Regional Security Investigations Manager for Newmont Mining Ghana.

Security experts interested in potential speaking opportunities at this forum can reach the Producer, Sonia Hickey, by emailing their topic for consideration to soniah(at)irn-international(dot)com.

More information about the Forum is available on the website,
