Rare Earth Conference

Australian Rare Earth Conference

The Australian Strategic Policy Institue, in cooperation with the Australian National University, invites you to attend the upcoming Australian Rare Earth Conference.

Australia is a global mineral supplier powerhouse, and is positioned to be a major producer of rare earth elements needed to drive the green energy transition across the 21st Century and beyond.

There are significant challenges to overcome including improving exploration targeting to discover new resources to sustain the supply pipeline, finding efficient, clean and economic technologies for ore processing, improving environmental and social outcomes of resource extraction and processing, and evaluating and managing the uncertainty in the markets.

The Australian Rare Earth Conference is the first conference to bring together industry, government and academia to discuss the state of the Australian Rare Earth industry. The conference will focus on geology and mineralogy of Australian ore systems, but will also include sessions on processing technologies and market dynamics.

The two-day conference will consist of split sessions on specific topics interlaced with keynote talks, a discussion ending the first day and a panel discussion to set goals for the future wrapping up the conference. Click here to register.

Sessions will cover, geological, technical, analytical, and metallurgical aspects of research as well as economics, supply chain and geopolitical issues.
