Welcome Letters 2017

Dear Guests and Participants
of the VIII International “Astana Mining & Metallurgy Congress & Expo

On behalf of the International Organizing Committee of World Mining Congress I would like to greet the participants of the VIII International Astana Mining & Metallurgy Congress & Expo.

The World Mining Congress (WMC) is an international non-governmental organization, that brings together mining professionals from 49 countries. The main task of the Congress is to promote scientific and technical cooperation for the progress in the domain of mining science and technology, as well as environmental protection and industrial safety.

I wlould also like to cordially invite you to take part in the 25th World Mining Congress in Astana 2018.

The first World Mining Congress took place in September 1958 in Warsaw, Poland. We’ll be celebrating the 60 years anniversary in Astana. Let us all meet there in 2018! In the framework of the 25th Jubilee World Mining Congress, a number of thematic sessions will cover such topics like: exploration and geology, underground and open pit mining, mining safety and economy, mineral processing, reclamation and revitalisation of brownfields. The Astana Mining and Metallurgy exhibition will take place during the conference.

I’m sure, that World Mining Congress in Astana 2018 will be a great opportunity for a worldwide exchange of information with respect to the development of mining science, technology, economics, health and safety aspects of mining operations and environmental protection.

I look forward to meeting you during World Mining Congress in Astana in 2018!

Professor Marek CAŁA,
Chairman of the International Organizing Committee
of the World Mining Congress
