Asia Sustainable Mining 2019

Date: September 12-20, 2019
Venue: Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, Holiday Inn
Location: Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
Target Audience: Cleantech developers especially in energy storage, energy efficiency, water & wastewater, solar; mining technologies developers with innovative environmental solutions; service and technology providers; off-grid solutions providers; and underground mining technologies.
Sector: Clean Technologies

Mining accounts for about 25% of Mongolia’s GDP and 75% of the country’s exports. The sector’s prospects for future growth are strong thanks to higher commodity prices on world markets for Mongolia’s three main exports: copper, gold and coal. This mission will focus on two of the main contributors to this economic production: the Oyu Tolgoi (OT) copper/gold mine, managed by Rio Tinto and the Erdenet Mining Corporation (EMC). OT alone plans to invest $1.2 billion in 2020 to further develop its underground mine and EMC is investing significantly to upgrade its technological base. To help participating companies take advantage of the opportunities in Mongolia, the Canadian Embassy will deliver the following activities:

1. OT site visit – the delegation will fly to this world-famous copper gold mine for a one day visit with a view to getting a firsthand snapshot of the operation and engagement with key management.

2. B2B meetings in Ulaanbaatar with key decision makers at OT and EMC. B2B meetings will be organized with industry experts, mining contractors and local dealers and distributors of equipment. The Embassy will also host a networking event.
