Denver Mineral Exploration Symposium. 

Changing Thinking in Mineral Exploration.

Golden, CO
13-14 September 2024

The Symposium

Two Days of Impactful Talks
13 September 2024
05:00 pm

The geopolitical situation over the past few years has exposed glaring weaknesses in the security of the global supply chain. The goal of the Denver Mineral Exploration Symposium is to bring together the disciplines of exploration geology, research and development, finance, and policymaking to begin a discussion on how best to secure the resources needed to ensure a stable supply chain and continued innovation of new technologies. As the base of the supply chain, exploration geology, and mining provide the raw materials needed for all manufacturing, as well as precious metal reserves. New precious and critical metal discoveries from friendly and stable jurisdictions will be showcased, which will include the display of drill core. In addition, the Denver Mineral Exploration Symposium will include talks on research and development into emerging technologies, the policies needed to implement the exploration and mining of metals, and how to finance this exploration.
