TECHNOLOGY DAY &
AFRICAN EXPLORATION SHOWCASE

Glenhove Conferencing Centre, Johannesburg
15 November 2018 & 16 November 2018

About

Target Generation Day

The Target Generation through Technology workshop is aimed at individuals in the exploration and mining industries who wish to learn more about available technologies for target generation and optimizing mining techniques.

This workshop is designed to present a broad overview of the specialist fields that are applied in the discovery and development of targets, including remote sensing and spectral imagery, geophysics, geochemistry, structural interpretation and mapping, as well as other non-conventional techniques.

African Exploration Showcase

The African Exploration Showcase is an opportunity to update the mining community with a selection of recent projects and developments. It is an ideal opportunity to share information about deposits that would hopefully add significant mineral economic value in the continent’s pipeline.

The audience includes prospectors, explorers, consultants, miners, financiers as well as media, and this is therefore a perfect opportunity to showcase exploration and mining projects in Africa.

A panel discussion on funding challenges will be held at the begin of the day and will include the following confirmed panellists:

  • Boris Kamstra – CEO, Alphamin Resources
  • Chris de Vries – MD, Deloitte Technical Mining Advisory
  • Errol Smart – CEO, Orion Minerals
  • Keith Scott – Chairman, The MSA Group
  • Mike de Wit – President, Tsodilo Resources

Topics for the showcase will include the following:

  • Bauxite in Mali
  • Tin in South Africa and DRC
  • Vanadium in South Africa
  • Graphite in Madagascar
  • Iron Ore in Botswana
  • Zn-Cu-Ni-PGE in South Africa
  • REEs in Uganda
  • Battery metals in Africa
  • Gold in Rwanda
