Johannesburg - The ANC is set to decide on the role of the state in the mining industry at its policy conference this week, secretary general Gwede Mantashe said on Tuesday.

"There should be a decision on the role of the state in the mining industry. It's a major issue for discussion," he told SABC radio news.

"Everyone agrees that the mining industry is doing well, but around every mine you see abject poverty and that must change.

"... If we are not changing that we are going to a find a situation of communities becoming more and more impatient and therefore we must address that issue," he said.

The African National Congress policy conference, starting on Tuesday, is a "preparatory conference" for the ANC's national elective conference to be held in Mangaung in December.
