Online/Australia – HiTeMP-3 Forum

The third international High Temperature Minerals Processing (HiTeMP) Forum, run by the University of Adelaide’s Centre for Energy Technology (CET), the Heavy Industry Low-Carbon Transition (HILT) CRC and Mission Innovation's Net Zero Industry (NZI) Mission, will take place online and in Adelaide, Australia on 26th-28th September 2022.

The HiTeMP Forum engages key stakeholder groups to develop synthesized perspectives of emerging drivers, technologies and opportunities to further decarbonize energy-intensive, high temperature process industries.

The organizers estimate that 250 leading specialists from around the world in industry, research and government will gather to identify the most prospective pathways to decarbonize the major high temperature industrial processes on which our global economy depends. They also expect it to build on the outcomes of the previous forums and identify the next steps for decarbonizing heavy industry.

Registration for the event is now open here, and virtual attendance options are available. Early bird registration closes on 4th August.


Online – Procemin-Geomet 2022

The 18th international Procemin-Geomet conference will take place online from 5th-7th October 2022.

The conference focuses on best practices and innovations related to mineral processing and geometallurgy in metallic and non-metallic mining. The organizers expect 300 participants and 70 presentations.

Delegates can register for the event here, and there is an early bird registration rate available until 5th September.


Online/Australia – IMARC 2022

Online/Australia - Global Uranium Conference 2022

The Global Uranium Conference (GUC) 2022 will be hosted by industry in Adelaide, Australia from 9th-11th November 2022 and aims to offer a platform on which global experts and industry leaders can present the latest research and best practice in the global uranium industry.

South Australia has been amongst the top three global producers of uranium since the 1930s and with an exceptional track record of the highest standard of safety, regulation and ESG credentials.

Supplying low-carbon energy to the world, South Australia has been producing uranium concentrate for export since the Radium Hill mine at the start of the 20th Century through to the modern Olympic Dam mine in the 1980s and the Beverly Insitu Recovery (ISR) mine in the 2000’s and beyond.

In the meantime, you can register your interest on the conference website to stay up to date as the GUC and associated event details evolve – whether it be for themes, keynotes, other speakers and panellists, site visits, workshops, exhibition opportunities, sponsorship, delegate and accompanying persons registration details, open forums and more.
