Recent IMARC research and feedback has pointed out the importance of Exploration for industry in 2019, and beyond. More mining companies are looking for the next big deposit by either finding it themselves or forming partnerships and/or acquiring exploration or junior projects.
As a result, this dedicated conference on Thursday 31 October, and specific exploration sessions in the Investment stream will include key presentations from Geoscience Australia, different state Geological Surveys, Heads of Exploration, Geoscience, and Geology from exploration and mining companies, as well as Mining Equipment Technology & Services (METS) companies supplying advanced exploration technologies.
Complementing IMARC sessions on this topic will also be a host of Mining Spotlights, the Mining Hub Exhibition space, and for the first time at IMARC, a Core Farm; all in the spirit of heightening the importance of exploration for industry.
Geared towards those from a non-mining background, this course provides a comprehensive understanding of the mining cycle; from exploration to planning, extraction through to processing. Attendees will leave with an understanding of concepts and processes, operational practices, essential terminology, and the roles of key personnel.
