Unlocking sustained value from
gold deposits

World Gold 2019



About the conference

The World Gold Conference series is a joint venture between The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (The AusIMM), the Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM) and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM).

World Gold will include all aspects of gold mining, including exploration, geosciences, mining (including geotechnical aspects), metallurgy (processing), environment and related themes.

Due to the diversity of gold mining interest, various workshops will be incorporated within the program and the conference will be followed back to back by MetPlant 2019 at the same venue. Take advantage of these two growing leading industry events and have your company represented at both events.
