AMC at SAREIC 2020

AMC Consultants is pleased to return to the South Australian Resources & Energy Investment Conference (SAREIC) as proud sponsors for another year. We will again place special emphasis on our Evaluate and Develop offerings, which have helped miners in South Australia unearth hidden value since we opened our office in Adelaide in 2008. Johann van Wijk, the General Manager of our office in Adelaide, will be joined by Principal Consultant, Marie Sexton, at booth #3 to represent AMC at this important conference.

SAREIC, now in it’s 19th year, will take place 1-2 April at the Hilton, Adelaide. The conference will celebrate South Australia’s trajectory from resource exports of $5.5 million in the 1980’s to a whopping $5.8 billion today, making it Australia’s second most popular exploration destination. AMC is proud to have played an important role in this development and looks forward to continuing to help operators mine smarter.
