Target 2017: Innovating now for our future conference organised by Geoconferences (WA) Inc. will be held at UniClub, University of Western Australia Uniclub from April 19-21 2017 in Perth, Western Australia.

The mining industry must act now in order to find the next generation of mineral deposits that will sustain human development. Most resources extracted from the Earth today exploit near-surface deposits discovered more than 30 years ago. The outcrop/subcrop search space is being rapidly depleted of world-class deposits, leaving broad volumes of the Earths’ crust unexplored. Innovation is required to aid discovery of new tier-one deposits, especially if the exploration space is to be truly broadened extending under cover. Innovation is also required to increase the discovery to investment ratio, which is at an all-time low. Target 2017 will focus on all aspects of mineral exploration and provide a unique opportunity to workshop solutions to the challenges that lie ahead.


Target 2017 is offerring AIG members a $50 off on conference registration.
