New resource code and the ‘mine of the future’

On June 17, the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3) will host a unique double launch event in London to introduce two brand new innovations for the mining industry:- IMMa and the PERC (Pan European Resources Committee) Code. The launch will be celebrated with the Annual Prestige Lecture – John McGagh, Head of Innovation at Rio Tinto will describe Rio’s great advances in mining by remote control in the Pilbara of Western Australia in a talk on The Mine of the Future. 

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: This committee has been working for several years to produce a European Resource 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 financiers should not miss the unveiling of these new regulations that will affect future mining IPOs.
