Papua New Guinea Mining Mission: 12 - 16 March 2018

Event Begins: 12 Mar 2018 9:00 AM   Ends: 16 Mar 2018 5:00 PM
Venue: Papua New Guinea

Austmine will yet again be leading a mining mission to Papua New Guinea in 2018!

PNG Mining Overview:

PNG predominantly mines gold, but is also home to a wide variety of metals, such as copper, rare earth metals, nickel, cobalt, chromium, iron and platinum. Their reliance on the mining sector presents significant opportunities for Australian METS companies, who have the technical expertise and advanced equipment that can counter some of PNG’s most pressing issues such as its harsh climate and underdeveloped infrastructure. 

The mining sector is expected to remain the most influential source of growth in PNG, with a number of large projects on the horizon including PanAust's Frieda River copper-gold mine, Nautilus Minerals deep sea mining Solwara project and Newcrest and Harmony Gold's joint venture Wafi-Golpu mine


PNG Mission Overview: 

Details on the agenda will be available in the coming weeks.

Following the very successful mining mission to PNG in 2017, we will be going back there in March 2018. 

Along with site visits, attendees will have formal meetings with management and executives from Newcrest, Ok Tedi Mining LtdBarrick Gold, St Barbara, Harmony Gold and others. There will also be a market briefing and meetings with the PNG Chamber of Mines and Petroleum who represent the mining industry and have many large miners and suppliers as members.
