AusIMM to kick off eighth World Gold conference

The World Gold Conference series is a joint venture between AusIMM, the Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM) and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), highlighting the ongoing collaboration of professional peak bodies in the resources industry globally.

The 2019 conference will be the eighth conference since inception.

“Australia’s $19 billion gold industry, and the professional expertise within it, will be showcased as we share knowledge and learnings from our international partners,” said AusIMM chief executive Stephen Durkin.

“Behind only China, Australia’s gold mines will produce an estimated 10.7 million ounces this year alone, a credit to the professionalism of the more than 20,000 individuals working directly in the Australian gold mining industry.”

Held in Perth on September 11–13, this year’s conference theme will be ‘unlocking sustained value from gold deposits’.

Leading the conversation are three eminent plenary speakers from the Australian industry, as well as six leading international keynote speakers.

The conference will include all aspects of gold mining including exploration, mining, geotechnical, metallurgy (processing) and environmental themes.

As a way of encouraging diversity of views, the conference will have workshop sessions where professionals can share leading expertise.

More information and registration details are available on the conference website.
