Secunda, Mpumalanga – Sasol Mining is proud to sponsor the 5th annual Joburg Indaba. Taking place on 4 and 5 October 2017 at the Inanda Club, the Joburg Indaba brings together South Africa’s foremost mining industry players to discuss issues impacting the industry.
The main objectives of the event are to encourage strategic, insightful conversations and create networking opportunities for different stakeholders within the industry. The theme for this year’s event is “investing in resources and mining in Africa”.
For the past 67 years Sasol has played an important role in the industrial growth and socio-economic development of South Africa. Through its mining business unit, Sasol continues to create jobs and contribute to social and economic development.
In addition to Sasol’s corporate social responsibility programmes, Sasol Mining promotes social and economic development by implementing Social Labour Plans (SLPs) and Local Economic Development Projects (LEDs). Sasol’s host communities, situated in four municipalities in Mpumalanga and two in the Free State, have benefitted in many ways from a variety of projects such as health clinics, a fire station, roads and foot-bridges as well as housing for Mining employees.
“As a proudly South African company, we embrace transformation. We are committed to contributing meaningfully to sustainable transformation within our organisation and in the communities near our operations,” said Lucky Kgatle, Senior Vice President, Sasol Mining
“As part of Sasol commitment to support, grow, empower and recognise women leaders, Sasol Mining’s Women in Mining Forum was launched in 2015. The forum addresses matters specific to women such as PPE, underground ablution facilities, career development and wellness.”
Kgatle highlighted that one of the achievements from the forum is the boot camp initiative that physically prepares women candidates for employment at Sasol Mining.
Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts and relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of such
forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return, executing our growth projects and cost reductions, including in connection with our Business Performance Enhancement Programme and Response Plan. Words such as "believe", "anticipate", "expect", "intend", "seek", "will", "plan", "could", "may", "endeavour", "target", "forecast" and "project" and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report on Form 20-F filed on 27 September 2016 and in other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking statements apply only as of the date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
