Launched in March 2005, Modern Mining now ranks as one of South Africa’s leading mining monthlies. The magazine is designed to offer valuable business intelligence on mining to its readers and covers mining throughout Africa with a particular focus on Southern Africa.

It has an extensive news section, which is carefully compiled and researched and which offers a comprehensive round-up of mining developments around the continent every month. This is supplemented by in-depth reports on specific mines/projects and by monthly features on industry topics –for example, open-pit mining contracting, bulk materials handling and crushing, milling and screening.

Commodity focuses on particular metals or minerals – for example, coal or iron ore – and country focuses form part of the editorial calendar.

Great emphasis is placed on a ‘hands-on’ approach to reporting and members of the editorial team travel far and wide throughout South Africa and neighbouring countries to secure original copy and photos.

Modern Mining features a crisp, colourful modern layout which complements the high-quality editorial.
