:: A Double Launch Event!

On Tuesday, June 17th, the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3) will host a unique double launch event to introduce two brand new innovations for the mining industry:- IMMa and the PERC Code. The launch will be celebrated with the Annual Prestige Lecture.

IMMa: The International Mining and Minerals Association is the new public face of the four resources divisions of the IoM3, representing those Institute members that belong to the Applied Earth Science, Mineral Processing & Extractive Metallurgy, Mining Technology and Petroleum & Drilling divisions. IMMa is the home for minerals industry professionals in the UK. Its launch coincides with a period of unprecedented demand for mineral and energy resources, when the mining industry is as buoyant as it has been in a lifetime and the need for skilled professionals is at an all-time high.

The PERC Code: IMMa is the senior 'sponsor' of the Pan European Reserves & Resources Reporting Committee (PERC), alongside the Geological Society, the European Federation of Geologists, and the Institute of Geologists of Ireland. This committee was established in 2006 to produce an update to the former IMM Reporting Code, for use on stock exchanges in London and other European capitals, and it is now ready to launch the new PERC code into the public arena. Mining analysts and professionals should not miss the unveiling of this updated reserves reporting code that will affect future mining IPOs.

The Annual Prestige Lecture is organized by IMMa and MinSouth. This year, John McGagh, Head of Innovation at Rio Tinto will give a talk entitled “The Mine of the Future”, which will describe Rio’s remarkable advances in mining by remote control in the Pilbara of Western Australia. A buffet reception will follow the prestige lecture to enable the attendees to mingle and network.

The Launch Day events are open to all with a professional interest in the mining industry. Admission is free but only by ticket. Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis, as places are limited. Apply for tickets by e-mail or telephone to Frances Perry, the IMMa secretary frances.perry@iom3.org +44(0)20 7451 7324
