42 | ASIA Miner | Volume 14 • Issue 3 | 2017 Events THE Mining Philippines Exhibition and Conference is the Philippines' leading convention for people, companies and organisations inter- ested in the investment environment of the country's mining industry as well as in mineral exploration, development and utilisation. Spread over three days, the annual conference in Manila has grown considerably since it began in 1997. Today it is the event of choice for investors and industry players wanting a better understanding of mining industry and the opportunities currently on offer in the country. The 2017 conference will be in the Marriott Grand Ballroom at Sofitel Philippine Plaza in Manila from Tuesday, September 5 to Thursday, September 7. With Indonesian nickel back in play and the Philippines' minerals policy gaining some stability after the regime of Regina Paz Lopez as DENR Secretary, where does the Philippines' mining industry go from here? The conference will address this important issue. The enforcement of stringent environmental and sound regulations will define the future of Philippine mining. This year's Mining Philip- pines conference thus promises to be even more noteworthy as policymakers and industry leaders are asked to share their thoughts on how the industry can grow under the current administration, the government's industrialisation and infrastructure programs, and how investors can navigate the policy and regulatory landscape affecting Philippine mining. Designed for resource investors to better understand current in- vestment opportunities in the mining and exploration sector, the conference will bring experts in the field, policy makers, senior com- pany executives and resource investors together in a relaxed yet sophisticated setting. In addition to meeting hundreds of exhibitors and attendees, del- egates will also have the opportunity to attend technical sessions, focused group discussions and important networking and social events. The exhibition floor will feature listed resource companies show- casing their investment credentials as well as local and foreign sup- pliers highlighting their equipment, technical skills, and services via the exhibition and formal presentations at the conference. Further information, including program details, is available on the website – – while delegates will also be able to plan their time and build customised schedules into their Smartphone calendars. Organisers conclude - Mining Philippines 2017 promises to be another unforgettable affair. We hope to see you there! DESPITE recently relaxing regulations restricting the exports of some raw minerals, Indonesia's government is focused on devel- opment of downstream processing and value adding to the nation's mineral resources. This focus and the changed regulations make the Regional Technical Conference (RTC) Mineral Processing 2017 event a must for those interested in benefiting from value adding opportunities. The event on Tuesday, November 14 at Dharmawangsa Hotel in Jakarta will be the latest in the RTC series organised by Mining Me- dia International, publishers of The ASIA Miner magazine and online news service. There will also be a Djakarta Mining Club meeting in the evening following the conference. Processing is an important aspect for the entire mining industry, particularly as it struggles to overcome the difficult downtime when optimisation and greater productivity is not just necessary but vital. RTC Mineral Processing 2017 will enable participants to learn about mineral processing technologies and services aimed at im- proving mining operations. It will bring together government, deci- sion makers, equipment and technology providers to facilitate inter- active learning and business opportunities. The conference will highlight regulatory changes, domestic and overseas processed mineral demand and supply forecasts, stra- tegic moves by IUP holders to secure financing, updated smelting and processing technologies as well as infrastructure challenges in building smelters. Among the topics it is likely to examine are concentration plant operation and optimisation; modelling of comminution processes; blasting, pre-sorting and crushing; grinding and classification; water management; tailings and process improvement; flotation technolo- gy; and environmental, recycling and social responsibility. It is imperative that companies with the technologies and expertise attend and participate while for business interested in getting their 'foot in the door' to a developing industry, this is your moment to shine. Conference organisers are seeking presenters who can contrib- ute to the development and growth of mineral processing in Indo- nesia. They welcome presentation submissions for the event along with sponsorship proposals. Papers in the following categories are sought: Case studies of current processing operations in Indonesia; innovative processing technologies; financing strategies for processing; equipment fi- nancing; investing in processing infrastructure; feeders, crushers and ball mills; separators, densifiers and driers; dewatering, com- bustion and maintenance; training, equipment and service oppor- tunities in mineral processing; smelting, including building, energy required, air quality, environmental effects, water and water quality, transport and uses.
