Finex ’18

FINEX ‘18 is the sixth in a series of biennial conferences bringing together financiers, innovators and explorers from major and junior companies.

Talks will cover developments in capital and commodity markets, mineral deposit science and innovation in exploration, from the standpoints of experts and professionals from banks, finance houses, stockbrokers, exploration and mining companies and contractors. FINEX is not an investment promotion forum but aims to provide a wider perspective on our industry.

FINEX is a non-profit event supported by sponsors and organised by members of MinSouth, the Applied Earth Science Division of IoM3, the AMA, the SEG and the Mineral Deposits Study Group of the Geological Society.
