Australian Government Announced as Major Sponsor

The Australian Government is confirmed as a Major Sponsor for the 26th World Mining Congress, and joins an impressive group of Congress Sponsors including Rio Tinto (Diamond), Newcrest Mining Limited (Platinum) and the Australasian Institute of Mining & Metallurgy (AusIMM) (Gold).

General Manager of Commodities and International, David Lawrence, said the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources is delighted to be a Major Sponsor of the 26th World Mining Congress to be held in Brisbane in June 2023.

“The event is a wonderful opportunity to showcase Australia’s high-quality mining and resources sectors to a global audience, to forge new business connections, and share the latest research, technology and best practice,” he said.

“This support is part of the Government’s $20.1 million Global Resources Strategy, announced in the 2021-22 Budget.”

Hosted by Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, the Congress will focus on Resourcing Tomorrow: Creating Value for Society.

WMC 2023 has received 538 abstracts from over 30 countries, and together with confirmed world class plenary speakers, the Congress promises to be a truly exciting global mining event.

Congress Chair Dr Hua Guo said he’s looking forward to welcoming mining experts from around the globe to the event to share their knowledge, technological developments, and practices for the betterment of our sector and society.

“I encourage those interested to submit your abstract before the 29 April deadline,” Dr Guo said.
