NSW - Business Seminar - Operating in Remote Environments Challenges and Solutions for the Mining Sector
The mining sector is key to the Australian economy, with some of the world's most important mineral assets resting in our own "back yard". Yet the remoteness and harshness of the environment in which these operations need to succeed, typically hundreds of miles way from major cities and centers of population, throws up many unique challenges for which solutions have had to be developed and adapted.
FACCI is delighted to invite you to this seminar which will focus on how the mining sector deals with the challenges of operating in remote environments and how it is tacking these through innovative solutions.
WHEN: Thursday 7 June 2012, 6.00 - 8.30pm
WHERE: Clayton UTZ, Level 15, 1 Bligh Street Sydney, NSW 2000
COST: FACCI YP Members: $15 | FACCI Members: $30 | Non-members: $45 (Prices are inclusive of GST)
