About MITS

Mining in Egypt

"Egypt is home to a wealth of mineral resources including gold, copper, silver, zinc, platinum and a number of other precious and base metals. With the availability of such resources, Egypt has the potential to be one of the top mining jurisdictions in the world.

Egypt's mining industry has been almost entirely undeveloped, with only three main foreign players. Hence, with very little mining activity in recent history, the Egyptian landscape is ripe with opportunity for modern exploration and mining techniques.

Egyptian investors and economists are expecting that the country's new mining law will create a pathway for rising exploration and investment opportunities in the field of mineral extraction and therefore boost the national economy and international exposure, ultimately providing ease of business."

About MITS 2019

Innovation, Technology & Solutions For Mining Sector in Egypt

A new era of mining in Africa has occurred and what better than Egypt as a destination.

To reach optimal production efficiency the Mining Sector in Egypt needs innovative technologies & solutions from International companies that operate in similar environments globally. The Egyptian mining sector needs mineral processing technology, equipment and proven expertise to develop mineral-based manufacturing. There are also opportunities for equipment manufacturers and suppliers, and companies that provide engineering consulting, drilling and chemical testing services. The industry also requires training and upskilling to fill supply chain gaps across the mining lifecycle.

There is a particular requirement for companies in gold exploration, drilling technology, mineral processing technology and equipment, engineering, processing and construction turnkey, and consultancies to assist in establishing the significant infrastructure needed for the mining industry in Egypt. Building the new Gold City will generate major infrastructure projects to support mining activities, which should provide opportunities for International companies in the power, transport, communications and construction sectors.

For the same reason, MITS 2019 will feature a wide variety of technical sessions along with knowledgeable professionals from around the world. This event will facilitate deal-making and unparalleled networking with peers.
