Diggers and Dealers - 3-5 August, Kalgoorlie, Western Australia

ASX is a regular sponsor and exhibitor at this annual mining conference, which this year attracted over 1,700 delegates. The conference combined presentations by listed mining and exploration companies with a large exhibition area housing exhibitors from the mining, exploration and service sectors.

The ASX reading of the conference ‘mood’ was one of optimism on the outlook for the resources sector, overlaid with the need for a level of caution on global recovery embodied in a key note speech by Prof. Nouriel Roubini.

The delegation included mining and exploration companies, brokers, bankers, investors, financiers and mining service industries.
