The conference is a physical platform for networking and sharing where specialists in the field not only exchange experiences about the latest business intelligence, opportunities and trends while sharing hands-on insights from the mining and exploration sector but also interact with policymakers and decision-makers from government and parliament in the Nordic countries.

With this year’s special pan-Nordic focus on exploration, legislation, financing and technical developments, combined with discussion on social consequences, benefits and environmental issues, the conference will bring together representatives from the Nordic region working with mineral exploration and mining, including companies, industrial associations, politicians, regulators, public servants, experts and service and equipment suppliers. High-level representatives from the European Commission, embassies and NGOs will also participate in the conference.

Future Mine and Mineral cooperates closely with the Canadian Embassy in Stockholm and prominent representatives from Canada will also be participating in the programme.
