FEM 2023 programme

FEM Conference focuses on exploration and mining. Therefore FEM invites speakers from exploration and mining companies, research institutes, academia, authorities and geological surveys. All presentations are by invitation only (no open call for abstracts). Talks from service industry are not invited unless they are not mandated by an exploration and mining company.

There are several other events concentrating on mining technology and processing industry. The Fennoscandian Exploration and Mining (FEM), on the other hand, has from the very beginning focused mainly on exploration and mine development.
