With the current exploration boom coming into effect, there are many new projects in the pipeline and all eyes are on Africa as the hot new region for mining companies to expand their operations and market share.

But everybody knows that before a project can even be implemented a detailed feasibility study needs to be conducted. And the outcome of these feasibility studies ultimately determine whether a project will come into fruition or not. During intensive research conducted with your peers in the mining industry, we have discovered that the industry faces many challenges during the assessment stage of exploration projects. Due to the nature of these projects in Africa, feasibility studies are taking a lot longer to complete. Various external factors contribute to project delays and these result in excessively high project costs. In addition, the mining industry also faces the added challenge of building partnerships with the community and ensuring sustainable development.

So what do mining companies stand to do?

IQPC introduces its Mining Exploration Feasibility Studies And Project Implementation conference, providing a set of solutions through case studies and peer- to-peer based learning. By attending this event, you will gain real knowledge and practical information from your peers who will shed light on how they have managed to improve their feasibility processes and minimise their risks during this crucial time. Find out how you can avoid cost overruns and delays due to capacity constraints. Know how to successfully present a marketable presentation to your investors.

By attending this event you will gain knowledge about the following:

• Examining ways in which your contracts can effectively be placed within your budget range to avoid a too far negative or a too far positive result
• Listening to your peers: understanding the challenges faced by mines globally and drawing comparisons to Africa
• Effectively engaging with the community to improve your planning of future community development
• Avoiding scope change and overspending of costs by conducting a scenario analysis to identify the most economical and cost effective engineering considerations fit for your organisation
• Managing your geotechnical risks in your mining project by examining alternative strategies and methods
