The revitalisation of the South African mining industry through the resuscitation of research and development (R&D) is under way as an outcome of the Mining Phakisa, a strategy forged by 120 government, company, union and nongovernmental participants, who last year spent five weeks working together to position South African mining as a collaborative engine for holistic economic growth. The old Chamber of Mines Research Organisation (Comro) facility in Carlow Road is being reopened under CSIR manager mining and mineral resources Navin Singh, who is intent on putting South Africa’s once globally recognised mining R&D back on the world map.
