About AMMSA

The Association of Mine Managers provides a platform for mining industry professionals to discuss, evaluate and debate mining and minerals policy, technical innovations, safety and health challenges and advancements in mining in South Africa. AMMSA’s current membership stands at 825 in seven categories – candidate (student) members, junior associate members, ordinary members, associate members, honorary life members, honorary associate members and retired members. Currently, 268 of our members are registered with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA).

AMMSA is recognised as a Voluntary Association by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA), which provides some influence in terms of the accreditation of learning materials and institutions and strengthens the Association’s role with regard to registration matters. Members comprise managers and general managers from gold, platinum, diamonds and base metal operations represented through five districts, including the Northern Cape, Free State, Central, Western and Eastern districts.

Industry committees with an AMMSA presence:

  • Mines Rescue Services Committee of Management
  • Commission of Examiners for the Mine Managers Certificate of Competency
  • MQA and ECSA
  • Occupational Health and Safety Policy Committee
  • MOSH Adoption
  • Chamber committees on environment, training and education and labour relations
  • Mine Health and Safety Council (MHSC)

The Association actively supports the Government’s initiatives on promoting a zero harm environment and each district also hosts a tripartite forum that included representatives from industry, Government and employees. The purpose of the forum is to share information and best practice on safe work practices in the mining industry, as well as promoting the adoption of MOSH practices across the mining industry in South Africa. AMMSA also aids junior engineers and graduates by encouraging them to attend technical visits and to gain access to all the technical papers presented by members.
