Latest conference theme: Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency

Prices of cryptocurrency, especially bitcoin, has been rising and becoming significant in the global financial markets as an alternative currency akin to precious metals like gold and silver. With Asia, in particular China, dominating the global bitcoin network, it is timely for investors and miners to attend Mining Investment Asia Conference in Singapore and be at the heart of this immense growth.

Bitcoin can yield benefits for mining industry with its dependence on cheap coal based electricity, but it can also present challenges vis-à-vis its role in affecting physical gold prices. Hence Mining Investment Asia will also be highlighting this bitcoin phenomenon with leading global industry experts.

Highlights from 2017 Mining Investment Asia Conference

The 2017 edition of Mining Investment Asia attracted more than 300 global and regional investors, miners and service providers with more than 60% representation from South East Asia. Hot topics in the ASEAN region such as mine closures in the Philippines and Freeport-McMoRan disputes with the Indonesia government over the Grasberg mines were frequently highlighted during the conference.

Besides South East Asia, Mongolian, Indian and Australian mining industries were also in the spotlight to give Mining Investment Asia a truly pan Asia Pacific perspective.

Mining Investment Asia also marked the start of Mining Investment Conference Series’ commitment to promote gender diversity, with a full day dedicated to Women in Mining. Mining companies such as BHP Billiton and Agincourt Resources shared insights on their company’s gender diversity practices while female mining professionals from Philippines, Australia, Indonesia and China shared their own expertise in diverse mining fields and personal anecdotes on overcoming challenges in a male dominated mining industry.
