About Conference

The Eighth Annual Uranium Conference

The Australian Uranium industry has consolidated in the past year and is looking forward to better times, with an upswing in prices over the past few months.

With political pressure brought on to sell to new markets this year, along with the upcoming proposals to mine Uranium as well as an EPA approval for a new mine in Western Australia, this year could mark a cornerstone for the industry.

The eighth Australian Uranium Conference (now incorporating Rare Rarths) will again feature industry updates, company presentations, government information talks, and technical presentations. This makes the event the original and all encompassing venue for anyone wishing to keep themselves informed on the uranium industry and the issues associated with it.

The conference has proven itself to be the most influential and largest Uranium event in Australia. Now with Rare Earths, which are increasing in demand throughout the world with the rise of new technologies and given the two are sometimes found in close proximity, the eighth Australian Uranium Conference will once again not disappoint.

Technical and Government Presentations

For the past two years this event has seen the inclusion of a second technical and government auditorium, covering technical issues and government policies that affect Uranium exploration and mining. This format will continue again, but will only occur on the first day of the programme.

On day two of the programme the technical forum will host technical, coprorate and overview presentations relating to the Rare Earths industry within Australia. Keynote presentations from Dudley Kingsworth, Tracy Weslowsky and ANSTO will feature along with company presentations from Alkane Resources Ltd, TUC Resources ltd and Peak Resources Ltd.
