MPDA is also hosting a Special Session at GAC-MAC-PEG 2024:  Emerging Trends in Mineral Exploration

Description: The availability of minerals and metals catalyzes the development of modern society. There is increased demand for the vast diversity of metals and earth materials that are used for almost all household and industrial applications. This requires innovative modern exploration techniques that facilitate the discovery of recoverable deposits. This session will bring together industry and academics to highlight ongoing efforts to improve mineral exploration.
