Managing Director of CSA Global, Jeff Elliott and Manager of Mining, Karl van Olden are looking forward to meeting you at Africa Down Under 2016 on the 7th-9th September 2016 at the Pan Pacific Perth Hotel, Western Australia.
The positive, changing face of the African continent is continuing to attract the lion’s share of global exploration dollars as prospectors zoom in on its untold mineral riches. Countries which were previously considered no-go areas have attracted a new wave of international investors, explorers and miners wanting to have another look.
This year’s event will be attended by several African Mines Ministers, business leaders and executives from the mining services industries; attracting more than 1000 delegates and a full three day programme of influential speakers.
