AusIMM New Zealand Branch Conference 2017
Rydges Latimer Christchurch, 10–13 September

Dean Conference Convenor


On behalf of the NZ Branch of AusIMM, welcome to the 2017 AusIMM NZ Branch Conference!

This year’s conference will highlight the latest research, exploration, operational and business news for the New Zealand minerals industry through what promises to be an interesting blend of plenary and concurrent sessions.

We will also be offering a variety of great field trips to the Canterbury and West Coast regions as well as professional development short courses.

Of course, our conference wouldn't be the same without the various social- and networking events. This year these will be held at the iconic Transitional Cathedral and city Art Museum.

The NZ Branch is looking forward for you to join us to ensure our conference remains the premier annual minerals industry technical and networking event. More than ever before, your continued support is vital to its on-going success.
