About Australia Minerals events

Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada Convention

The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada Convention (PDAC) is held in March each year at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Canada

PDAC is the world's leading convention for people, companies and organisations in, or connected with, mineral exploration. Australia Minerals attends this event to promote Australia's exploration and investment potential to over 24,000 attendees.

Science in the Surveys

Science in the Surveys is hosted every two years by one of Australia’s state or territory geological surveys. The event aims to highlight the outstanding science being conducted by Australia's geological surveys, CSIRO, UNCOVER and the DET CRC.

Australia-Japan Mineral Resources Investment Seminar

Australia Minerals hosts a Australia-Japan Mineral Resources Investment Seminar at the Australian Embassy in Tokyo, Japan each year.

The Australia Minerals team looks forward to promoting Australia's exploration and investment potential in this significant investment market in an effort to attract increased investment in mineral exploration in Australia by engaging international government agencies and mining/exploration companies.

The half-day seminar includes a series of presentations on Australian minerals/energy commodities and the Australian investment and policy environment. Spoken presentations are simultaneously translated into Japanese or English with PowerPoint presentations displayed in English. A display area is set up in the foyer to allow attendees to engage with participating government agencies and companies and a networking event is held immediately after the seminar.

If you are interested in attending the seminar please email
