About Procemin-Geomet 2017

Improving efficiency in the geology-mining-metallurgy value chain

Geometallurgy’s main objective is to add economic value to the exploitation of mineral resources through the timely delivery of information and modeling of relevant geological and metallurgical variables.

A rigorous planning process of mining and processing of any mineral deposit, including relevant risks mitigation cannot be achieved without proper understanding of the geology-mining-metallurgy value chain. Procemin-Geomet 2017 arises from this vital synergy in current times, that with three days of technical sessions will be an excellent opportunity to share technical experience and strengthen global professional network. In addition the conference will promote efforts towards a more sustainable and cost-effective development of the mining industry, which will be the key actors during this conference.
