FORBES: South African Mining Executive Brian Menell Talks About His New Venture, TechMet


For over 25 years Brian Menell, 53, has overseen, developed and managed natural resource and mining projects across 18 sub-Saharan African countries, and in the CIS and Canada. The Menell family founded and controlled the Anglovaal Group – one of the dominant players in the African mining and industrial scene over the last 80 years.

In this light, I was delighted to briefly chat with Menell about his new venture, TechMet, an industrial company that is building controlling or significant minority positions in world-class projects across the technology metal supply chain including mining, processing and recycling. He talked about the growing geopolitical significance of technology metals supply from Africa and other emerging markets.
