IGS chairs sessions at The Mining Show

dsc03421v2Antony Benham from IGS recently attended the Mining Show in Dubai, chairing many of the sessions and panel discussions over the two-day event.

The Mining Show, previously known as MENA Mining, is one of the largest mining-related events in the Middle East and brings together Ministers and other senior governmental advisors with key figures from industry to discuss and debate issues in exploration and mining. This year topics ranged from challenges facing the mining industry in the next few years to technological advances in the exploration industry, and even one talk on the potential for mining asteroids.

As well as meeting with geological surveys and advisors, the event was a successful opportunity to publicise IGS to a wider audience, and IGS is grateful to the organisers of the Mining Show, Terrapinn, for the invitation to chair at this event.
