Mining Journalism Training for Journalists

Mining is one of the most important sectors of the South African economy, while a strong media is imperative for sustainable mining. In order to ensure proper public scrutiny, the media needs to become acquainted with the mining sector jargon and the industry, at least at a basic level.

In order to help the media, gain a better understanding of the mining sector in South Africa, the Menar Academy brought together the mining experts and senior journalists to train for mining journalism.

In the training moderated by Jacques DeBie and opened by Vuslat Bayoglu, the attendees had the opportunity to listen the lectures of Hulme Scholes, Mike Teke, Keith Rayner, Warren Thompson, Charlotte Mathews, Loftty Mmola and Brendan Ryan. The speakers were gifted with a donation to Qhubeka in their names by Menar as their honorarium.

The training had 22 attendees from various institutions such as Creamer Media, CNBC Africa, Interact Media, Business Day, Fin24, Jacaranda FM, Power FM, Kaya FM, Middelburg Observer, Thomson Reuters, Africa News Agency, BDTV, EWN, College Publishers, Pretoria Technical College, Tshwane University of Technology and University of Johannesburg.

The training took place on the 29th and 30th of August, at the Hyatt Regency in Rosebank with a site visit to an operating mine, Phalanndwa Colliery in Delmas, planned for the 6th of September.
