Eunomix Research has completed an independent empirical analysis of the impact of mineral policy on the performance and socioeconomic contribution of the mining sector in South Africa over the past 20 years. Interventions over the past two decades have had a detrimental effect on the economic contribution and performance of the sector. Furthermore, these interventions have failed to deliver some of its key socioeconomic objectives. The overall efficacy of South Africa’s mineral policy has been low.
A plea for the government to awaken to the massive real potential of the South African mining sector was made on Wednesday by Eunomix CEO Claude Baissac, who decried the disincentivising of South African mining over the past 20 years as an inexplicable paradox and a massive mineral policy mistake.
"Eunomix has completed an independent empirical analysis of the impact mineral policy has had on the performance and socioeconomic contribution on the mining sector in South Africa over the past 20 years."
"Country-risk strategy and economics advisory firm Eunomix will release its latest study, completed on August 31, at this year’s Joburg Indaba, in which it demonstrates the causal relationship between the decline of the South African mining sector and the local policy environment."

EunomixCR App Launch!
Eunomix has developed a unique interactive country risk analysis and management app, EunomixCR, that gives clients easy access to international and country data on drivers of country risk. The EunomixCR app is currently being deployed with mining clients in South Africa, and will become web accessible in the coming months. Expect an invitation to our public launch soon. Our development partner is Polysphere.
Eunomix facilitated a work session between government officials and mining executives during the Ministerial Symposium. The outcome of the workshop was fed-back to the plenary as part of a continuous process of constructive engagement between African governments and the industry in support of the African Mining Vision.

These things my spirit bids me
teach the men of Athens:
brings countless evils for the city,
but Eunomia brings order
and makes everything proper,
by enfolding the unjust in fetters,
smoothing those things that are rough,
sentencing hubris to obscurity
making the flowers of mischief to whither,
and straightening crooked judgments.
It calms the deeds of arrogance
and stops the bilious anger of harsh strife.
Under its control, all things are proper
and prudence reigns human affairs
Thus wrote the Athenian statesman Solon, philosopher and poet in the 6th century BC, of Eunomia, daughter of Zeus, who in dreams would appear to the rulers of the city-state and inspire them to legislate and rule justly and competently.
Eunomia, it seems to us, represents the ideal metaphor of the proper management of human affairs, and has inspired the name EunomixTM.
