Overcoming #exploration challenges and finding success in #CentralAsia
As with every #exploration project, the biggest challenge – other than stating the obvious which is the ability to eventually mine for materials, is how to carry out exploration activities in an efficient and cost effective manner.
I have recently attended the Asia Mining Congress in Singapore, where a senior banker from JP Morgan, Roger Kennedy, also stated the point that what investors are now looking for, are projects that demonstrate what i have just mentioned. Therefore, maintaining a low cost operation will help you to attract the right investors. In addition, there have increasing demand for certain type of resources such as rare earths, copper and gold – all of which Central Asia is riched in. By not meeting this increased demand, it will eventually cause bottlenecks to economic growth.
At Central Asia Mining Congress 2012, 2 prominent mining companies with operations in Central Asia will join us to discuss this specific issue. Hambledon Mining and Chaarat Gold have over 30 years of operational experience in Central Asia between them and are in the best position to advise new entrants on how they can too, reduce their operations costs and maximise the productivity.
As a continuation on this topic, 5 other speakers will share case studies on how to overcome obstacles and minimising exploration costs. The list of speakers includes : –
- Erlan Sagadev , CEO of Frontier Mining UK
- Alimbek Seidullayev , CEO of Lancaster Mining , Kazakhstan
- David Savage , Chairman of Newbridge Capital UK
- Kuban Ashyrkulov , GD of Kentor Gold , Kyrgystan
- Alastair Raulston-Saul , CEO of Saddleback Corporation.
