Member of FLSmidth's Board and former CEO of BHP, Marius Kloppers, was inaugurated in the South Africa Mining Hall of Fame by the Joburg Mining Indaba 2017 in South Africa. The South Africa Mining Hall of Fame honours individuals who have shown exceptional leadership in the South African mining industry: "As an industry, we know too well our unique legacy and challenges and believe we can do more to celebrate the significant progress that has been made. We would therefore like to recognize and celebrate key players in our industry, role models that young South Africans can look up to," explains Chair of Joburg Mining Indaba, Bernard Swanepoel.
 
"We unanimously chose to nominate Marius Kloppers as an outstanding individual, who has contributed to the mining industry’s development over many years; improving the Australian-South African axis, driving unmatched growth and reshaping the mining landscape," says Bernard Swanepoel. Marius Kloppers used the opportunity to address the need for governments and mining companies to agree on shared interests and the need for a broad view on value to ensure future growth.
