2nd Annual Mineral Rights
Over 130 mining stakeholders attended the 3 Day Mineral Rights Compliance & Reporting conference.
The DMR was there in full force to facilitate a day workshop and also stayed until the end of the third day to note all the challenges faced by the mining sector.
The evaluation forms only had praise for the DMR and the way they conducted the workshop and their “refreshing approach” and “open manner in assisting” the mining companies attending. The seven DMR speakers were rated extremely well.
A feedback document was forwarded to the DMR a week after the conference comprising of a summary of comments made at the conference. ITC will give feedback shortly on the upcoming conference for 2011.
ITC would like to thank the exceptional speakers for their commitment to speaking at this conference and a special thanks to the DMR.
