MetFest! Parkes NSW 2023
MetFest events bring together teams of regional metallurgists, process engineers and other associated professionals for a unique day of networking and professional development. This will be the 13th MetFest and follows successful events in Orange, Adelaide, Perth, Kalgoorlie, Brisbane amongst others held since 2016.
About this event
MetFest Parkes will commence with a guided tour of the processing facilities at Northparkes Mine (own transport to and from site is required). Followed by an afternoon of technical talks on the practicalities of operating a concentrator, technical wins (or losses) and project work on going within our region. This will be followed by the Delprat Distiguished Lecture – Peter Hayes, and conclude with networking drinks and canapes.
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet with industry peers in a relaxed and friendly environment. These events typically sell out so reserve your place early.
