The Australian Institute of Geoscientists, Geological Society of Australia and AusIMM Southern Queensland Branch Committee invites you to attend a combined meeting with the Australian Institute of Geologists and Geoscience Australia on investing in Resources in Queensland.
How does Queensland Exploration Rank?
The Fraser Institute now ranks Queensland as 12th in the world for investment potential in the Mining Industry down from 10th in 2016. Western Australia is 5th and Finland is the best place to invest according to the Fraser Institute.
Todd Harrington will provide a talk on the changing face of investment that is focused on Queensland, the focus shift towards developing projects and exploration and incentives that the Queensland Government are utilizing. . This improved Queensland’s position from 17th to 10th on 2016 but in 2017, Queensland has dropped back. How can this be improved?
Ian Macfarlane will outline how industry sees the incentives for exploration in Queensland and the improvements that the QRC would like to see happen.
The meeting will then be open to suggestions from our members for improving incentives for exploration in Queensland as well as any other topic on mining.
Who should attend?
Although directly related to geological exploration, this will provided an update for those in the mining industry in Queensland on the incentives for future mining project development.
