PROCEMIN-GEOMET Santiago, Chile: Register now! Only 8 days to go

It’s just over a week to go ‘til Procemin-Geomet 2017 in Santiago, Chile. Don’t miss out; register now! This year, CEEC is proud to return to Chile to speak again at this key conference, and to host a Mining Energy Innovation Forum in the lead-up to the conference. Register here. Details here.

Gecamin will showcase efficiency improvements across the geology-mining-metallurgy value chain from South America and around the world. An exciting conference program has now been announced with 60 presentations from over 12 countries, with inspiring keynote speakers, panel experts, and a short course on simulation of metallurgical processes.

The PROCEMIN-GEOMET Conference is an important event promoting sustainable development and cost-effective mining solutions. The three-day conference features papers on good geometallurgical practice and how to deliver value in mineral production.

Come along and network with other global professionals, find out the latest from South America, and share your technical insights.
