World Gold 2019 is coming to Perth on 11 to 13 September as part of the World Gold Conference series, a joint venture between The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, the Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum.

The Gold Industry Group is a proud partner of World Gold 2019, which will include all aspects of gold mining, including exploration, geosciences, mining (including geotechnical aspects), metallurgy (processing), environment and related themes.

Sponsored by Gold Fields and The Perth Mint, the conference is a global gathering of resource industry professionals, providing networking opportunities to engage with industry peers and international companies, hear from leading industry figures, attend world-class workshops and technical talks to earn PD hours.

The program will also feature nine keynote speakers presenting on major technical innovations and technologies to unlock sustained value from gold deposits and discussing the topic: ‘What does the future hold for gold?
