The company, which has a workforce of over 800 employees and projects in over 20 countries, will be exhibiting at the largest industry event in the continent for the third consecutive year.

“Africa is one of the most important mining areas in the world and our commitment to the continent is clear. We have been investing here for more than 40 years and the results couldn’t be better: we are a leading player within our segment of activity and have a growing customer base that more and more values our differential, high-value combination of technologies and technical support,” explained Brett Wheatcroft, Regional Director of MAXAM in Southern Africa.

MAXAM will take advantage of Mining Indaba to showcase its range of solutions for underground operations, leveraging its over 40 years of experience in such projects in Africa.

Customers attending Mining Indaba will also have the chance to know more about, RIOFLEX, a density bulk product that achieves excellent performance in all types of rock. This bulk watergel contributes to minimise the total cost of ownership due to the savings in the drilling and blasting application and the whole value chain of the mine as a result of a better fragmentation. RIOFLEX has been tested in more than 140 sites in 25 countries.

Fernando Beitia, Director of Bulk Products of MAXAM, will talk about the company’s emulsion and watergel technologies at a conference during the show. His talk will take place on 6 January at 13:00 hours, local time at the Indaba. The event is open to all Mining Indaba attendants and no prior registration is needed.
