Welcome to Arab Mining

Arab Mining is a dedicated International Conference and Exhibition on Mining, Minerals and Materials in the Arab World.

The Arab World is well-known for its hydrocarbon resources but mining development has lagged relative to other regions. One of the biggest obstacles is a lack of genuine partnership and collaboration between the regional and global mining industries.

Held in London, the global centre for mining and mine finance, Arab Mining will showcase the outstanding potential of mining and minerals in the Arab World. The event will focus on technology transfer and investment promotion, with a particular focus on the needs and requirements of Arab governments and producing mines.

Arab Mining brings together government ministers, geological surveys, exploration companies, producing mines, cement companies, fertiliser businesses, steel companies, all looking to boost productivity, secure finance and share operational best practices.

Join us in London for 2 days of unparalleled networking, investment discovery and exciting new business opportunities.
