Why organise SMG 2017?

By organising Symposium Mines Guinea, the Government of the Republic of Guinea are proving that they are putting their policy of promoting Guinea as an attractive and ideal mining investment destination into practise by:

  • Relaunching mining activities post Ebola epidemic
  • Developing mining projects with a focus on minerals resisting to the market downturn;
  • Attracting new investors for a better assessment of the country’s mineral deposits through Public-Private Partnerships
  • Supporting and diversifying  the development of mining projects

SMG 2017: West Africa’s largest mining event

Symposium Mines Guinea is now established as the largest mining event currently organised in West Africa. In 2011, the event attracted over 900 delegates, 90 exhibitors and over 3000 visitors, emanating from over 25 countries. Eighty five presentations were delivered and technical visits were undertaken to the mining sites of Simandou, Kamsar, Sangaredi and Boké.

SMG 2017, an established event

Symposium Mines Guinea has been organised on a biannual basis since 2004 (Bel Air, Boffa, Guinea), 2006 (Dusseldorf, Germany), 2008 and 2011 (Conakry, Guinea). SMG 2017 will be the 5th edition of the event.
