Leading industry companies and a broad array of industry leaders made their way to the African continent's largest mining convention in February. The Mining Indaba, as it's called, is an annual Mining Conference held in Cape Town, South Africa that attracts brokers and lenders, explorers and miners, politicians and policy makers from throughout the world to get the latest updates on mineral exploration and mining in Africa. While Pula is the only American exploration company operating in Tanzania, the American presence at this year's Indaba was impressive by any measure.

Epiroc becomes the first company in the mining industry to sign a delivery agreement with Swedish steelmaker SSAB for SSAB Zero™ – a fossil carbon emission-free recycled steel produced using fossil-free energy sources. The steel will be used in Epiroc’s battery-electric range of underground mine trucks and loaders, set to be introduced as soon as Q3 2023.
SSAB Zero™ will be used in the production of Epiroc’s Smart and Green series of battery-electric mine trucks and loaders, enabling zero-emission underground operations. The partnership between SSAB and Epiroc is part of Epiroc’s long-term commitment to produce the world’s greenest machines, as well as SSAB´s aim to help create fossil-free value chains.
“SSAB Zero™ broadens our zero-emission portfolio and strengthens the business offering, allowing us to bring zero-emission steel to our customers already this year,” says Thomas Hörnfeldt, Head of Sustainable Business at SSAB. ““There is a large demand for this kind of steel, and it is satisfying to have such an offer in place.”
“We are very excited to utilize SSAB’s pioneering low-carbon solutions. This is one of many ways that we are accelerating the transformation of the mining industry – while also helping our customers to reach their sustainability goals,” says Sami Niiranen, President of Epiroc’s Underground division.
SSAB Zero™ has zero fossil carbon emission (less than 0.05 kg CO2e emissions per kg steel in scope 1 and 2) in operations, including purchased energy and transportation. SSAB practices market-based emission factors for the electricity used and may secure fossil-free electricity through electricity guarantees of origin. Fossil fuels remain in the ground as SSAB has implemented a system to manage and ensure the correct source and use of alternatives connected to the production of SSAB Zero™. Only recycled steel is used as a raw material, which means SSAB Zero™ supports the circular economy. SSAB does not engage in carbon emission offsetting activities.
A key viaduct that will take HS2 trains across the A413 and local rail lines south of Wendover has been given the green light by Buckinghamshire Council. The striking 345m long viaduct is the latest major structure to gain design approval, as construction continues to ramp up on the UK’s new high speed railway.
