International Mining and Resources Conference in Melbourne
28 – 31 October 2019
It is for the fourth year AACCI partnered with IMARC to support the promotion of the event and participation from the MENA Region.
During IMARC 2019 AACCI participated with AACCI President and National Chairman, Mr Roland Jabbour OAM, Board Members and staff at:
– The Official Delegates’ Welcome Reception at the Government House
– The Victorian Government Networking Function at IMARC 2019
– The Formal Meeting with the Saudi Delegation led by Deputy Minister for Mining Investment Development, HE Mr Saleh Alaqili.
The meeting was very positive and holds a number of potential outcomes including hosting KSA Delegations, roadshows and dissemination of information for attraction of Australian early explorers to KSA. The KSA mining potential is huge where at present there is only 15% of the Arabian shield is being mined. The KSA mining development strategy is underpinned by providing a very attractive investment and legal framework underpinned by key initiatives: National Geological Database; National Geological Survey Program and the Accelerated Exploration Program.
The arrangement of this meeting was facilitated in collaboration with Austrade in Riyadh. AACCI aims to develop deeper involvement and understanding of the mining sector opportunities across the MENA to attract, match and support mining and services companies.
