More than 30 breakout sessions and keynote presentations have been confirmed as part of this year’s China Mining expo agenda, aimed at boosting investment, cooperation and trade between China and the global mining sector. Leading mining industry representatives have signed on to discuss the strategies and trends for mining development within the Chinese market and the international sector.

This year’s conference will run from November 3-6 in Tianjin. Almost a quarter of the available floor space has already been booked, with 300 booths still available.

The agenda includes five areas of discussion to cover the entire mining value chain from policies and financing through to mining sustainability. Brazil and Russia are among the countries to headline the segments to focus on investment and trade, while nations including Australia and Canada will host their own pavilions within the exhibition hall. Commodities such as iron ore, uranium and precious and base metals have secured specific timeslots within the program.

Running in conjunction with China Mining 2012 is the China Mining Equipment show, which has been held concurrently with the general exhibition since 2010 to maximize opportunities for delegates to incorporate all facets of up to date mining information and product knowledge.

Since its inception in 1999, China Mining has become one of world’s largest mining events, covering the whole mining value chain, including geological surveying, exploration development, mining rights trading, mining investment and financing, smelting and processing, mining techniques and equipment, mining services and more.

The expo is also highly regarded as a forum for creating more communication and cooperation opportunities for mining communities globally.
