With South Africa’s mineral endowment and its public capital markets being two of its greatest advantages, both need to be put to work in a manner that is common in other global mining jurisdictions, Utshalo founder Paul Miller emphasised at Wednesday’s collaborative opening of the way for smaller investors to increase their shareholdings in the Northern Cape’s attractive copper endowment. In this case, the collaborative initiative brings Australia Stock Exchange- (ASX-) style shareholder participation to smaller South African shareholders through the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), with implementation brought about by Utshalo working in tandem with the Johannesburg- and Sydney-listed Orion Minerals, headed by CEO Errol Smart.
