The IDC’s goal is to ensure globally and domestically competitive downstream activities in the value chains of the metals that are used in automotive, machinery and equipment and fabrication. Ultimately, the IDC wish to see a globally competitive and diversified local basic metal and mineral resource industry that produces a significant amount of the metals products and minerals for the local market and the rest of Africa, as well as increasing exports of value-added minerals.
Accordingly, the Metals and Mining unit offers finance and, where relevant, technical assistance to a range of entities in the mining space including emerging mining houses. The IDC fund the development of projects that increase the production of non-ferrous metals, iron and steel, the development of large mines and the manufacture of jewellery. In short, the IDC is keen on projects that beneficiate and add value, locally.
