WHEN             1 July 2014

WHERE           Venetia Mine


As part of the annual Bring a Child to Work initiative De Beers hosted 29 Grade 11 and Grade 12 learners from Musina, Alldays, Manenzhe and Taaiboschgroet. The expedition saw learners in Mathematics, Science and Accounting interacting with members of the Venetia Young Professionals Society, exploring career opportunities in the mining industry and learning basic safety, health and environmental principles. The programme included a visit to the Venetia openpit viewpoint, Secondary Crusher and Skills Development Centre. 

Learners met Assistant General Manager, Hendrick Matjila and were treated to an inspirational talk by Senior Manager: Aisha Khan who emphasized that the new Venetia Underground Project would be mined and managed by aspirant miners and future leaders from their generation. Attendees were encouraged to dream big, and to work hard to make their dreams come true. 

“It is a great programme that gives young adults an opportunity to view the mining industry from a different perspective and explore different career opportunities” said Sizwe Sehale son of Victor Sehale Acting Pit Superintendent at Venetia Mine.

Through exposing the leaders of tomorrow to the exciting world of mining, Venetia Mine hopes to have inspired them to continue the diamond dream by utilizing the riches of the Limpopo Province to develop their communities in a sustainable manner.
