We are delighted to invite professionals working in the Russian mining industry, to take part in the 11th  Mining and Exploration Forum – MINEX Russia 2015

The Forum will be held in Moscow from 6-8 October 2015

MinexRUS-13-D2-134-2This year, this premier meeting of the Russian mining industry is organised on the backdrop of the strategic rethinking of the country’s economic priorities and emerging role of mining industry as potential backbone of accelerated development of the mineral-rich areas in the Far East and Siberia.

Russia is deeply integrated into the global production, trade and investment. In the current situation of uncertainty and overhaul of the global geopolitical and economic priorities, the medium-term objective is getting the Russia’s economic development back to the pre-crisis levels. However the main challenge faced by the authorities and businesses alike remains the realisation of the internal potentials which could provide basis for sustainable and accelerated growth. One of the underrated and not fully understood economic potentials is Russia’s mineral and metals base.

With the continuing global growth of living standards and the urban population, the development of infrastructure projects and creation of new technologies, the role of metals and minerals will be vital in the international economic development in the 21st century.

Russia is generously endowed with human and natural resources. The main issue – to ensure their effective use. Over the last 25-30 years after the replacement of the Soviet planning system with the market conditions, the Russian mining industry managed to turn into commercial success many projects which were previously considered uneconomic and abandoned. These achievements were possible not because of the state support but thanks to the implementation of the new approaches and creative thinking by the managers and investors.

As Russia is swiftly moving into “modernisation mode” the Forum organisers are inviting mining professionals to discuss the potentials for industry’s recovery and accelerated growth.
