The Chamber of Mines has postponed the 2020 Mining Expo and Conference, following the confirmation of two cases of the COVID-19 (Corona Virus) on 14th March and the suspension of mass gatherings for at least 30 days as announced by the President Hage Geingob.
“The 2020 Mining Expo and Conference promises to deliver a high standard of cleanliness and hygiene at all times,”
The event which was originally scheduled for 22 and 23 April, will now take place on 2 and 3 September in Windhoek, Veston Malango, Chamber of Mines CEO, said in a statement.
“The Chamber notes with concern the rapid spread of COVID-19 in other countries, and will thus closely be monitoring the situation in Namibia,” he said. He further added that, the Chamber prioritizes the safety, health, and well-being of all event participants and will take the necessary precautionary measures leading up to and during the event.
