GENERAL INVESTMENT FRAMEWORK IN GUINEA
Discussions on the investment framework in Guinea: justice, security, legal, regulatory and macroeconomic frameworks. Lessons learned from other countries in the African region.
REFORMS MADE TO ASSIST MINING INVESTMENT IN GUINEA
The mineral potential of Guinea is considered one of the most important in the world, yet it remains largely untapped. What reforms has Guinea undertaken to promote the development of its mineral resources? During this session, panelists will discuss issues related to cadastral management, administrative procedures facilitation, transparency, infrastructure deficit and other institutional and regulatory reforms.
FINANCING MINING PROJECTS
As the mining sector is characterized by fluctuations in prices, one of the major challenges facing the industry is the issue of financing. During this session, panellists will discuss the evaluation of mining projects through analysis of financial models, public externalities, resource analysis, reserves and mining plans, as well as modes and sources of financing.
SHARED MINING INFRASTRUCTURE: A LEVER FOR MINING DEVELOPMENT
Infrastructure development is a key component in attracting investment to the mining sector. What strategy or policy can be put in place to answer this problem? Private Public Partnership? Pooling the use of related infrastructure? Synergies between operators?
GEOLOGICAL INFRASTRUCTURES AND DEVELOPMENTS
Geological infrastructures are an essential element of sustainable mining development. The active pursuit of mineral exploration is conducive to diversification. Ongoing initiatives will be presented: AMTEC, Geological and Mining Information System, ongoing exploration work (graphite, black sand, gold, etc.), plus the opportunities and development potential of the large bauxite deposits.
THE BAUXITE INDUSTRY, CHALLENGES & OBSTACLES FOR TRANSFORMATION
Given the bauxite potential of Guinea and the market outlook, what strategy should be put in place to ensure that the country plays a leading role in the world production of bauxite and alumina?
DIVERSIFICATION OF GUINEAN MINING PRODUCTION
Beyond bauxite, iron and gold, what other minerals should enable Guinea to ensure a wider diversification of its mining production: Rare earths? Graphites? Scandium? Nickel? Uranium? Building materials, etc.
TOWARDS A SYNERGY BETWEEN MINING & ENERGY
A reliable supply of energy is crucial for the development of the mining sector. In this context, several projects (public and private) are currently under way in Guinea. How to develop a synergy between the energy sector and the mining sector to facilitate the realization of renewable energy projects?
ENVIRONMENT AND MINING
It is undeniable that mining activity could have a negative impact on the environment. What kind of regulation or good practice can be implemented to mitigate or eliminate this impact?
