African Mining seems to be on the map again. With the Investing in African Mining Indaba, held in Cape Town in February 2019, celebrating its 25th year in existence, it is an opportune time to ask some of the pundits about the state of African mining and where we are headed. Nobody can contest the fact that the continent hosts some of the best ore bodies the world has ever seen and might have some hidden gems we haven't even discovered yet. Although we cannot view Africa as one country, it remains difficult and risky to do business in most jurisdictions.

To gain more insight, and to answer our question on whether the African mining industry is rising again, we asked some of our regular contributors about the opportunities, the risks, the challenges, and their predictions for Africa in 2019.
