The research and production of Nigeria Mining Week conference and technical workshops, which will be held in Abuja, Nigeria in October 2019, is now underway.

Now in its 4th year, the ONE event shaping the Nigerian mining landscape will capture the stories behind the successes as well as the complexities and the road blocks behind the status of the development of the mining sector in Nigeria.

It is designed specifically for all scale mining professionals to learn from the relevant key stakeholders and their peers how to best start up their activities as well as how to improve their operations, while providing direction for the future.

Top-level speakers from all key industry segments will present their views using case studies, in-depth sessions and interactive panels. The Nigeria Mining Week management team is constantly searching for speakers who can share new and innovative experiences and visions.
