Última actualización:

Organised under the central theme “Sustainable development of the Western Tethyan metallogenic resources” the Forum will provide insights into exciting mining projects developed across the Balkans countries. The Forum will also highlight innovation trends in exploration and extraction, processing, waste management, and mine closure across the European continent and globally. Over 200 international delegates are expected to attend the Forum from the Balkans countries, EU, Canada, USA and Australia.


With Euromax Resources looking to develop the Ilovitza gold project, Solway Group’s Bucim copper/gold mine, Genesis Resources Plavica gold project at feasibility and the recent $400m purchase of the Sasa zinc project by Central Asian Metals, Mining sector in the Republic of Macedonia offers potential growth prospects for the foreign investment in the mining sector. When you factor in all the activity in neighbouring countries across the Tethyan Belt, the Western Balkans are a veritable mining and exploration hotspot.
