With the general belief that the majority of globally significant and accessible Mineral & Metal resource occurrences have already been discovered, increasingly the Mining Industry players are looking to technology to increase the value of existing resource discoveries, as well as find new ones in non-traditional geographic areas. Central Asia, with Turkey which has become geopolitically significant as its main hub and Turkey is becoming geo-economically significant in East-West and Middle Eastern trade relations in Natural Resources, is one of the most significant non-traditional areas. As such there is a growing need for the application of Global Mining Technology in these areas and markets as an enabler to unlock the significant Mineral and Metals potential that is known to exist but is as yet un-qualified and un-quantified. This Conference, supported by the Government and the Ministry of Energy & Natural Resources of Turkey is intended to drive awareness of Global Mining Technology and the potential for its application to developing a â€œWorld-Classâ€ industry in Central Asia with Turkey desirous of becoming a leading example and major development hub for what might be achieved. The Conference is targeted industry wide to all sectors, Coal, Base Metals, Ferrous Metals, Precious Metals, Diamonds, including both underground and surface mining, as well as the impact such technologies are having in related fields such as the Quarrying Sector for Industrial Minerals and Dimensional stones.
