Who We Are

Certified Company ISO 9001-2008

Gubhani was established in 2008 by Lindiwe Nakedi, a black female born in Soweto. She changed the narrative in the mining industry, in the essence of being the only black female-owned and run exploration drilling company in South Africa. She understands the importance of bringing value as a contractor and progressed trade by co-managing with a qualified Geologist. We occupy space through Exploration drilling by partnering with organisations that mine minerals such as coal, diamond, copper, chrome, nickel, gold etc. We have enjoyed various accolades, with Gubhani being bestowed the 2020 "Standard Bank Top Gender Empowered Companies" award and our MD emerging as one of "Top 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining 2018" By WIM UK, amongst sixteen only selected women in South Africa.
