About MINEX Europe Forum

The 2nd MINEX Europe Mining & Exploration Forum will be held on 13-15 June 2017 in Belgrade, Serbia.

Organised every year in a different country, MINEX Forum helps to spotlight opportunities in a specific region of Europe.

By bringing to the region global mining expertise, the Forum aims to help the local Government, Miners and Local Communities to take advantage of the international knowledge gained by other mining regions in developing sustainable and responsible mining industries.
