11th Fennoscandian Exploration and Mining (FEM 2017) Technical Programme Timetable

 

FEM 2017 highlights exploration and mining in Fennoscandia. FEM Conference includes world-class presentations by invited speakers, pre-conference short courses and a trade show.

FEM 2017 Conference programme
Many mining and exploration events concentrate on mining technology and processing industry. The Fennoscandian Exploration and Mining (FEM), on the other hand, has from the very beginning focused mainly on exploration and mine development. Therefore FEM invites speakers from exploration and mining companies, research institutes, academia, authorities and geological surveys.

All FEM presentations are by invitation only (no open call for abstracts).

Official language
The official language of the conference is English.

Main topics
• EXPLORATION: NEVER ENDING STORY
• CURRENT MINE DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS
• SUCCESS STORIES APPLIED TO NEW EXPLORATION AND MINING TECHNOLOGIES
