Chile to host Procemin Geomet event, Santiago, Chile: 4-6 October

Gecamin will once again showcase insights from South America and globally on improving efficiency in the geology-mining-metallurgy value chain. This year, CEEC is delighted to be participating in this Procemin-Geomet 2017 event.

The conference will feature papers on good geometallurgy to deliver value to mineral production. This conference is an important event promoting efforts towards a more sustainable and cost-effective development of the mining industry.

Over three days of technical sessions, attendees will share technical experience and have the opportunity to network with other global professionals.
