Congress Dates: 8th -10th November 2017

Congress Venue: Hotel WestIn, Rajahat, Kolkata, India.


The Asian Mining Congress (AMC) a biennial event organized by The Mining, Geological & Metallurgical Institute of India (MGMI), provides a forum for the miners, machinery manufacturers, planners, regulators, academicians, scientists and policy makers to discuss various issues affecting the mineral industry in the Asian region in particular, and rest of the world at large. The first AMC and IMEwere held in January 2006 to commemorate the centenary of MGMI.


Asia, the world's largest continent, is also the world's highest producer of raw materials to the tune of 10 billion tonnes per year, accounting for 56% of global mineral production. With huge area and diversity of geological set-up in Asia, it is likely that every kind of deposit is present in this continent. The outlook for mine development is very promising here and it plays a major role in the global economy.
The congress will provide a forum for promotion and support of techno-scientific cooperation towards national and international progress in the areas of mineral production, in addition to the development of new opportunities of sustainable business that will benefit both Asian and world communities.
