Almost 300 people from across the resources sector came together last week to hear industry and government addresses as part of the Melbourne Mining Club’s first-ever Victorian Critical Minerals Showcase.
The Geological Survey of Victoria (GSV) kicked off the evening, with geologist Sam Waugh discussing 'Tin and Tungsten in Victoria: Yesterday’s contaminants become tomorrow’s critical minerals'.
He highlighted that GSV is currently focusing on a range of critical minerals whose presence in Victoria is not well understood. Undertaking targeted research studies to better understand the mineral systems could help increase Victoria's capability to supply more critical minerals in the future.
Presentations also included Southern Cross Gold’s Managing Director Michael Hudson talking about antimony, VHM Limited’s Managing Director Graham Howard discussing mineral sands and ACDC Metals’ Executive Director Mark Saxon presenting on rare earth elements.
The Melbourne Mining Club's Victorian Critical Minerals Showcase provided a forum for small-to mid-cap exploration and development companies to speak in an informal gathering.
