I'm afraid that Gwede Mantashe is doing more damage than his predecessors. If somebody does not realise that in government, there's not going to be anything left to legislate here.Peter Major, Director of Mining - Mergence Corporate Solutions
I think the energy transition offers an opportunity for the mining industry to capture. A once-in a generation opportunity.Fortune Mojapelo, Founder and CEO - Bushveld Minerals

Really with all the noise coming out through the Indaba we'll have to make sure all stakeholders do a lot more together to ensure that mining happens properly.Shirley Webber, Coverage Head, Natural Resources - Absa Corporate and Investment Banking
