COMMODITIES 2017 – on the way up??? 


With the recent uptick in commodity prices, many are saying that the market feels perkier than it has in many a year!


The question is, is this for real? Is it sustainable? Will it last?


  • Are commodities truly on the way up?
  • Are we seeing a real upward trend?
  • What does this mean for miners and deal makers?
  • Is there enough confidence in the industry to encourage investment?
  • What long-term investments will be made on the back of rising prices?
  • Which are the best performing commodities?
  • Is this a good time in the cycle to invest?
  • What are we going to do differently this time round?


These important questions were discussed at the Breakfast Indaba
