MIT was established in 1995 with a mandate from NUM to become a wealth-creating vehicle to assist retrenched workers in the; mining, construction and energy sectors and also provide support to their family members and respective communities.

The Mineworkers Development Agency (MDA), the JB Marks Education Trust Fund (JBM) and the Sam Tabani Research Institute (SATRI) are the primary recipients of grants from the Trust. However, the Trust can and may from time to time support other projects as mandated. The Elijah Barayi Memorial Training Centre is a self-sustainable non-profit organisation but remains part of the MIT Family. MIT is the sole shareholder of two business entities; The Mineworkers Investment Company (MIC) and Numprop (Pty) Ltd (Numprop), any dividends received are ploughed into programmes and operations of the trust.
