Australia Minerals PDAC International Stage presentation

Seminar details

In 2021, Australia Minerals will participate in PDAC’s International Stage program.

Our 30 minute session will feature short and punchy presentations focussing on Australian minerals exploration, innovative geoscience, and opportunities and developments across the mining supply chain.

Australia’s resources industry thrives in partnership with international investment and offers investors one of the highest returns on exploration investment in the world. Industry, government and academia work together to support exploration and mining, and participation in the Australian mining sector is an opportunity to gain exposure to the world’s best practices.

Join us as Australia Minerals provides a unique insight into Australia’s prosperous minerals investment potential.
