The Botswana Chamber of Mines is an organisation established to serve the interests of the mining and exploration companies together with associated industries. The mining industry remains the main driver of economic activity in the country and is forecasted to sustain the economy further into the future.
More exploration for minerals is taking place in the country and whilst this is a welcome development, it is essential that the progress is achieved smoothly with due regard for legislation. The Chamber of Mines aims to ensure that legislation in the country is conducive for mining companies and at the same time developing good working relationships with the legislator.
The direction that this industry pursues therefore is not only significant for the mining organisations, but crucial for the country’s purported buoyancy in the world economic fora. The organisation realises the critical success of this strategy to be dependent upon its people. The purpose of the Botswana Chamber of Mines is to serve the interests of the mining houses and to influence policy decisions and strategic intents within the government, non-governmental organizations and related bodies.
