Almost half of the 300 mining companies preparing to showcase their projects to investors at this year’s Mines & Money Hong Kong conference are gold producers or explorers. The event will be held at Hong Kong Conference & Exhibition Centre from March 19-23.
With gold mining stocks remaining flat in the last 12 months, despite the gold price increasing by almost US$400 in the same period, investors are now presented with a superb buy opportunity. Organizers of the forum say one of the hot talking points will be how to pick a winning gold mining stock.
The keynote address will be from leading gold analyst Philip Klapwijk, who is the global head of the metals analytics section at Thomson Reuters GFMS.
Gold producers and explorers exhibiting at the March 19-21 forum include Meritus Minerals, Mindoro Resources, Argonaut Gold, Centerra Gold, China Gold International Resources, Cobar Consolidated Resources, Goldminex Resources, Sumatra Copper & Gold and YTC Resources.
The conference program also features a wide range of other mining opportunities in coal, iron ore, copper, nickel, PGM, tungsten, REEs, uranium, manganese and potash.
This year for the first time, an additional one-day commodities summit will be held to allow delegates to focus on price trends and investment opportunities across a range of in-demand mining commodities. There are also regionally-focused sessions to investigate some of the key emerging mining centres.
Organizers says the conference will offer major networking opportunities with executive level delegates at what’s tipped to be the largest gathering of investors focused on the Asian mining sector.
