The Association of British Mining Equipment Companies (ABMEC) is holding its Annual Mining Conference at the Warmsworth Hall Hotel, Doncaster on Thursday, 14th November,2013 and with a line-up of ten speakers, is set to address key issues affecting the global mining and minerals market.
The keynote speaker will be Keith Brown,
who will draw on his 20 years industrial experience,including a story of survival in a South African gold mine, and the way it can change lives forever.
Other speakers will be John Ford (H&S Executive), Chris Hinde (InterraRMG research), Jim Kier (UK Export Finance), Paul Moore (Editor, International Mining magazine), Daniel Smith (Latham & Watkins law firm), Chris Torrens (Control Risks), David Vint (ArcellorMittal) and Jim Walker (mining industry veteran, and past-President of ABMEC).
The proceedings will be moderated by BBC Correspondent Nick Higham who will chair what promises to be a lively and thought-provoking Q&A session, with a strong focus on recent trends and the changes which are taking place in this key economic sector of the economy.
At a time when the UK domestic mining industry is shrinking, it will explore emerging markets and new overseas opportunities, and while addressing the acknowledged obstacles, will emphasise the potential rewards available.
The mining industry is driven by many factors; it has peaks and troughs and only the tough survive.
To be forewarned is to be forearmed, and this Mining Conference takes a look at the trends and tendencies that have taken place and how we can pre-dict and prepare for future challenges.
Fortunately, the world will always need minerals and metals. As the UK mining industry shrinks, the opportunities to explore emerging and new markets grow, and while overcoming the obsta-cles can be difficult, the rewards can be enormous.
With speakers from the investment sector, media, research and industry specialists, this one day event promis-es to provide an ideal platform for dis-cussion on:
Global overview of the minerals and metals market
Understanding the risks involved in foreign markets
Discovering how problems have been solved practically
Ensuring health and safety
standards work effectively
