The main objective of the Sampling and Reconciliation Congress, which will be held on November 2 and 3, 2023 at the Jose Antonio Deluxe Hotel in Miraflores, is to improve good practices in mineral sampling and mining reconciliation, presenting findings of world renowned professionals and success stories of important mining companies worldwide.
Although the mining industry is increasingly concerned about good sampling practices, it is not prepared to face three difficulties: the first is the theoretical level, as there is little knowledge about sampling theory; the second is the practical level, as professionals do not know how much, where and how to extract samples; and the third is the economic level, which is the feasibility of the project.
Due to this major problem, International Metallurgical Consultants (InterMet) is pleased to organize this event that involves two important topics: Sampling and Reconciliation. Both topics in the same event where you can share experiences and learn from the research of world class consultants and mining companies that are doing the right thing, generating a lot of value to their companies.
As mentioned before, the event will be attended by world-class experts; who, together with professionals from geology, mines, QA/QC concentrator plants, research centers and suppliers, will discuss fundamental and technological aspects, share implementation experiences along with best practices in the area.
The meeting includes technical presentations, keynote lectures, panel discussions and a series of activities that will allow for first class networking, which will be attended mainly by mining professionals and decision makers in their operations and projects at the Peruvian and international level.
