AMC at SAREIC 2019

AMC Consultants is pleased to return to the South Australian Resources & Energy Investment Conference (SAREIC) for another year, this time placing special emphasis on our Evaluate and Develop offerings. Johann van Wijk, the General Manager of our office in Adelaide, will be joined by Principal Consultant, Andrew Proudman, at booth #3 to represent AMC at this important conference.

SAREIC, now in it’s 18th year, will take place 9-10 April at the Hilton, Adelaide. The conference will celebrate the growth that the state of South Australia has experienced whereby in little more than a decade, it has gone from four operating mines to more than 20, and is rated Australia’s second most popular exploration destination. AMC is excited to have played an important role in this development and looks forward to continuing to help operators mine smarter.
