28-30 August 2013: Africa Down Under

Spatial Dimension is pleased to announce that it will be exhibiting at the Africa Down Under conference in Perth, Western Australia. The conference, one of the most important on the global mining investment calendar, will be held at the Pan Pacific Perth Hotel and Novotel Perth Langley from 28 to 30 August 2013.

Come visit our team at booth #131 and see why FlexiCadastre has become the global benchmark for enterprise mineral rights management solutions for both private sector and public sector organisations.

“Of particular interest this year, will be the launch of our new generation EITI Compliant public portals. These internet mapping portals are used by Government Agencies to publish their tenement data, mining contracts and revenue figures online,” said Mr Glenn Matthews, Regional Manager for Spatial Dimension APAC.

About the conference

The positive, changing face of the African continent is continuing to attract the lion’s share of global exploration dollars as prospectors zoom in on its untold mineral riches. Countries which were previously considered no-go areas have attracted a new wave of international investors, explorers and miners wanting to have another look. Striking examples of these are Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mozambique

Over the nine years that Australia’s Paydirt has been hosting the Africa Down Under Conference, there has been a surge in the growth rates of nearly all African countries, largely driven by the unparalleled demand for commodities from China. This ancient land mass of Africa is without question the world’s greatest treasure trove – and has yet to be comprehensively explored using modern techniques.

While much of the continent has, in the past, attracted the major companies, a new era of joint ventures with juniors and grub-staking is taking place from Ghana in the north-west, to Kenya in the east and down south in the all-powerful triad of South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.

The action across the continent is taking place hard and fast there could not be a better time to explore the options and hear the stories from the people who are unlocking the wealth of the formerly “Dark Continent”. The lights have come on in Africa, and you cannot afford to miss Africa Down Under, Pan Pacific Perth (formerly Sheraton Hotel) and Novotel Perth Langley, on 28 August - 30 August 2013.

Apart from presenting companies, the event will be attended by several African Mines Ministers, business leaders and executives from the mining services industries. Last year, the conference attracted more than 2000 delegates, 166 exhibitors and a full three day programme of top-notch speakers. This year it will be far bigger, consolidating our reputation as the best melting-pot for business conducted between the two continents.
