News
On May 21, 22, and 23, at the Cepas Sanjuaninas venue in the province of San Juan, the mining industry will showcase its latest innovations and productive advancements within the framework of the "10th International Exhibition: San Juan Mining Expo". Organized since 2006 by the specialized media outlet Panorama Minero, the event expects to gather more than 15,000 attendees and will have the participation of over 15 countries and 300 companies linked to the sector.

The exhibition, one of the most renowned in its field, will feature the inaugural speech by the governor of the province, Marcelo Orrego, who will welcome his counterparts from Catamarca, Salta, and Mendoza to finalize the agreement for the Copper Task Force, a roadmap for enhancing the country's major copper projects that are in the developmental stages. Additionally, the participation of the new national authorities and various provincial mining departments is anticipated, alongside the attendance of over 30 mining companies from segments such as copper, gold, silver, lithium, and industrial minerals, among others.

The event, the most federal exhibition in Argentine mining, will have an attendance not only from the local community, including residents, students, academics, and companies from San Juan, but also from representatives of other provinces with interests in the activity and delegations from abroad focused on stimulating investments in the mining sector, driven by a context that demands a closer look at Argentina's potential in the field.

A strong presence from the private sector is also expected, with all stands and commercial spaces sold out and a figure surpassing 300 companies set to participate in the three days of commercial exchange. It is projected that over 2,000 business meetings will take place during the Expo, culminating in key encounters to foster the development of investments in large-scale projects, with the participation of representatives from both the public and private sectors.

"We are entering a new political and economic period in the country that aligns with an international context where mining plays a leading role. The country and the world need more of this industry, and especially a mining industry that is beneficial for society, sustainable, and close to the people, generating income and genuine employment. Ensuring this proximity is one of the objectives we have as an organization, and therefore, we hope it serves as a channel of connection and aid for all interested parties," stated Panorama Minero just a few weeks before the event's commencement.

Details of the activities and the 2024 agenda are already available on the official website, as well as registration for participants and the list of exhibitors and sponsors. Admission is free for the entire community, and entry includes the opportunity to participate in informative talks, live shows, a tour of stands exhibiting products, services, and technologies applied to mining, an outdoor machinery area, gastronomy lounges, and specialized activities.
