Mark Cutifani, Chief Executive of Anglo American
joins an esteemed group of mining and investor heavyweights, as the keynote
speaker at the 2014 Joburg Indaba in October.

Cutifani with more than 38 years in the mining industry has working
experience in 25 operating environments and with 20 commodities and is
widely recognised as an industry innovator.

The Joburg Indaba is aimed at building a competitive, sustainable and
legitimate mining industry through strategic conversations. "Mark's broad
industry, technical and commercial knowledge is a prime example of the
calibre of speakers joining the critical conversations at this year's event"
states Bernard Swanepoel, moderator at the 2014 Joburg Indaba.

Opportunities and solutions that could outline the route to a competitive
and sustainable mining industry will be thrashed out at this year's event
amongst various leaders, game changers, and entrepreneurs in both the mining
and investment sectors.

Robert Friedland will be back again to join colleagues in thought provoking
discussions alongside Graham Briggs, Valli Moosa, Mike Teke, Noah Greenhill,
Peter Leon, Michael Spicer and many others.

If anything, discussions from the inaugural event were open, honest and
outright blunt. 91% of attendees citied the requirement of strong,
supportive and visible political leadership of the mining sector to be
vital, whilst real concerns were voiced on current regulatory issues, and a
dire need for local government to clearly state its position on mining as
SA's economic driver. Special focus will be given at this year's event to
the labour issues that have crippled the industry and the challenging
trade-offs between cost, productivity and unemployment, highlighted by the
mechanisation versus labour debate.

The majority of the attendees recognised that the industry needs to
fundamentally change direction in order to prosper. To join the
conversation on 8-10 October 2014 visit www.joburgindaba.com
