Turkey, Central Asia mining summit to be organized in Istanbul
ISTANBULThe first ever Turkey and Central Asia Mining Investment Summit will be conducted in January 2014 in Istanbul with the goal of determining how to best capitalize in the two regions’ mineral potential.
The summit will feature the area’s leading explorers, producers, legal experts, bankers and investors.
“Professionals such as us, possessing so many experiences, should share our best practices for the benefit of all. The program provides a great opportunity for those who like to understand what’s happening elsewhere in the industry, what has worked and what has failed,” said Zehra Marangoz, the human resources director of Alamos Gold, Turkey.
Turkey is home to some of the world’s largest gold deposits with a resource potential of up to 23 million ounces of gold, according to the Turkish Gold Miners Association data. Of the known deposits, there are currently four active gold mines and a further four planned mines within the near future.
