At its core, the Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM) is a professional institute with local and global links aimed at assisting members to source information about technological developments in the mining, metallurgical and related sectors. SAIMM appointed Firejuice is to assist it in repositioning in order to better serve its markets.
This will begin in early 2021, with the introduction by the SAIMM of its modernised value proposition, made up of six main thrusts. Vaughn Duke, CEO of mining consultancy Sound Mining and current president of the SAIMM said, ‘South Africa has always been a mining powerhouse. Having a dedicated body that provides relevant services to help the industry grow is a key ingredient in its future growth and sustainability.’
Bernard Jansen, founder and principal consultant at Firejuice said, ‘Over the years we’ve successfully worked with a number of businesses in mining, and we are excited to now have the chance to work with the body that represents the entire sector.’
