With Mongolia's mining industry attracting plenty of attention around the world, the Discover Mongolia 2011 International Mining Investors' Forum in early September will ensure that delegates are kept as up-to-date as possible about the ever-changing trends.
The annual investor forum will take place on September 8-10 with conference sessions to include a keynote session, market review, producers session, exploration session, infrastructure session, ‘Growing Together With Mining’, ‘Government Hour’ and responsible mining session.
Organizing committee chairman HE Ochirbat Punsalmaa says, “Discover Mongolia Forum is the most prominent mining investment event in Mongolia, therefore we are putting much thought into the various sessions. We believe the conference agenda will interest mineral sector investors as well as state and provincial governments, and private sector businesses.”
The conference will feature prominent speakers including the chairman, who is also the first President of Mongolia, Scotia Capital’s Donald Njegovan, Behre Dolbear Group president Bernard J Guarnera, Sprott Asset Management market strategist David Franklin and Mongolian Mining Corporation CEO Battsengel Gotov.
The draft agenda for the forum is available on the conference website.
Mongolian National Mining Association executive director Algaa Namgar says, “The forum’s main focus will be centred on Mongolia’s mining and exploration industry while emphasizing global and regional trends. I am sure having such distinguished speakers will add more excitement to the event.”
