We invite you to join us for ALTA 2022

The conference will start Sunday 22 May and conclude Thursday 26 May complemented by online short courses on either side of the main conference dates.

ALTA 2022 is a world-class annual metallurgical conference, now in its 26th year, and a leading platform for innovation.  ALTA conferences are well-known for providing exceptional opportunities for the industry to share ideas, innovations, technologies and projects, and develop new industry connections.

The emphasis of the carefully crafted program is practical rather than academic, and the themes running through the conference are the various aspects of technology and project development. We are pleased to partner with CSIRO Mineral Resources for the In-Situ Recovery Conference (ISR) and Curtin Gold Technology Group for the Gold-PM Conference. The Uranium-Rare Earths and In-Situ Recovery conferences are organised in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
