Outstanding executive contributions providing essential insight:

Mining for the Low-Carbon Economy & High Tech Industry

The Chinese dominate the production of rare earths, and to a lesser extent that of the minor metals as well. Given the trade restrictions the Chinese government has put in place over the last few years, interest in new projects in Africa has surged dramatically. However, many conclude only some of those projects in Africa will succeed – how to improve this success rate is one of the main aims of this conference.

This niche conference brings together rare earths & minor metals exploration firms, producers, mineral processing companies, investors and the end-users to discuss the opportunities and challenges in the industry.

Highlights from the programme include:

  • Jack Lifton, Principal of Technology Metals Research will take you through the extractive metallurgy of rare earths, why it’s so difficult to do right, the state of art technology and how to effectively to manage the processing and separation aspects of rare earths projects
  • Dr. Elisa Tongu, Chief Geologist, Council for Geoscience will take you through the geology and distribution of rare earths in Africa and delve into the potential reserve estimates of rare earths
  • Hear from Dr Tony Howard Chief Operating Officer at Montero Mining on the latest on The Wigu Hill Rare Earth Project in Tanzania and strategies adopted to fast‐track the project to mining and production

Take advantage of our exclusive offer for evening masterclasses on “The state of the art in processing rare earths” and “Dealing with Thorium and Uranium” running on the 9th and 10th October respectively.
