Cape Town - At this week's Mining Indaba in Cape Town delegates must come up with practical measures to ensure that women - particularly black women - form 50% of top management in the mining sector by 2018, the ANC Women's League (ANCWL) said on Monday.

"There is lack of transformation and implementation of employment equity. According to the Commission of Employment Equity report 2014/15, 62.4% top management in the mining sector is white males," the ANCWL said in a statement.

For the ANCWL it will therefore be disappointing if the majority of participants at this week's 2017 Investing in Africa Mining Indaba are males. The ANCWL said it would feel let down if this turned out to be the case, because women in the mining industry face various challenges.
