As President of the Organizing Committee of the XII International Congress of Prospectors and Explorers (proEXPLO 2021), it is an honor to assume the enormous responsibility of leading this prestigious event, which has positioned the country as one of the main destinations to present the advances in mining exploration in the world.Undoubtedly, this is a demonstration of the great efforts that the Peruvian Institute of Mining Engineers (IIMP) has been making to strengthen the link between academia, industry and mining investors.
Under the slogan “Mineral Resources for a Sustainable Future”, this edition aims to reinforce the message of the importance of mining exploration to find minerals that helps future human development in a clean and less polluting environment.
With this objective, an innovative program of activities clearly focused on the mining exploration business has been prepared, including sessions onExploration Innovation, Exploration Successes and Optimal Transition: Exploration to Mine. The objective of the first session is to present and discuss the new technological tools applied to the mining exploration industry, the second session will be aimed at presenting the new discoveries of mineral deposits in Peru and Latin America and the third session will be aimed at expose engineering processes to convert discoveries into profitable mining operations. Universities, geological services, mining companies, exploration companies and investors in general are invited to participate in the different sessions.
We will also have a technological and trade exhibition that will be the ideal scenario for mining and exploration services companies to show their technological advances in the improvement of productivity and relationships with the social and environmental context.In proEXPLO 2021 we will launch the First Mining Exploration Project Fair, which will be a new business relationship platform between smallmining investors with large mining companies or investment funds interested in expanding their investment portfolios. In this regard, we invite the owners of mining concessions to present their technically supported projects to be exposed during the event.
Finally, I would like to invite you to join us in this edition of proEXPLO 2021, an event that will bring together students, professionals, speakers, and mining investors from different parts of the world at the city of Lima.
Thank you very much
