Background

The Junior and Emerging Miners Desk in the Minerals Council represents thirty-five (35) junior companies as well as two associations, who in turn represent a further one hundred and fifty small entities. It provides various support services to its members including running Webinars on topics relevant to the Junior Mining Sector. More information on the work of the Desk can be found on the link below.

In addition, there will be a panel discussion with a sample of Junior companies.
