What the Attendees say:

These functions are a wonderful way for ‘out of towners’ to meet new people and make friends in the industry. We will definitely be at the next event.

I would like to congratulate The African Mining Network organisers on the great evening. I am sure this is the beginnings of something great!

Rowan and I really appreciated the function last night. A bit of nostalgia for me as the last time I was inside the Rand Club was in 1981! As first time visitors we were keen to circulate, talk shop and hand over business cards. This was achieved in the bar with great value. We could see many people were keen to meet new people but time was limited. Looking forward to the one next month. Well done and keep it going.
