I would like to thank you and all the team and organisation. The three days were very interesting for me as a mining senior engineer.

Really good event and good spread of companies.

You did a great job of bringing top quality speakers and panelists.

Loved to hear insightful views from so many parts of the industry.

The Global Mining Symposium has been really good and very worthwhile, a real good effort to have put it together.
