Alec Hogg has interviewed Lonmin CEO, Ben Magara at the Mining Indaba about investor confidence, the mood on the ground and what the mining industry needs in SA.

Lonmin says it will cut more than R2bn of costs and set a higher hurdle for new projects after being dragged into the red this year by a bruising five-month strike.
