CAWOOD, F.T.. Threats to the South African minerals sector : an independent view on the investment environment for mining. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2011, vol.111, n.7, pp.469-474. ISSN 2411-9717.

This article offers a personal and independent view on the threats to the sustainability of the South African minerals industry. It argues that if the six identified threats of insufficient spending on research and development, general standard of education, nationalization, inadequate infrastructure, Aids prevalence and labour inefficiency are not acted upon as a matter of urgency, the future of the mining industry, along with its important contribution to the economy, is at risk.

Palabras clave : South Africa; investment environment; sustainability; research and development; education; nationalisation; infrastructure; transport; electricity; aids; labour; mining industry; contribution to economy; mineral resource; industry risk; government; public perception; mining company; investment destination; competitive industry.
