Making Mines Making Money

The RIU Explorers Conference has earned a reputation as the major Australian forum for the junior resources sector, with mineral exploration companies and emerging new miners attracting an ever-growing group of brokers, fund managers and investors to hear their presentations.


The RIU Explorers Conference began in February 2002  at a time when the resources industry was just starting to pull out of a long period of malaise. The 250 delegates there witnessed the first signs of recovery and many junior stocks got their first kick in investment that led to some of them becoming strong mid to high cap stocks. At the same time many in the supply industry used this event as a springboard to the growth that set themselves for many years of strong profits.


Since then the industry has been through the resources boom, the GFC, the immediate short term recovery and an investment crisis. Over the last few months, however, we have just started to see a return to investment in resources stocks that will hopefully lead to better times in the next 6 to 12 months. Through all of this the RIU Explorers Conference has grown to an event which fills the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle by Rydges with 50 Exhibition booths and has regularly attracted between 700 and 800 delegates. It is the event that starts the Australian Resources Conference Calendar and is always the most optimistic and eagerly awaited event.


Now in its 13th year the two day event features CEO’s, Operations and Exploration Managers of the best mining and exploration companies as well as new emerging explorers; providing a venue to garner investment and to meet with other resources industry professionals to discuss new options and progress their business.
