The industrialisation of Australia was kick-started by Broken Hill. It is the gateway to The Outback with a rich mining history, extensive resources and surprisingly, more art galleries than pubs! With such a vast array and wealth of natural resources, it's time to showcase what this region – and indeed the whole of Australia – has to offer, across all resource and energy sectors, from mining, oil and gas, to minerals, precious metals and alternative energy. This will be the largest event ever run in Australia – across any industry – with a wide mix of delegates comprising the majority of Australian resource and energy businesses and keen international investment interest from fund managers, bankers and private investors. Symposium is developing a packed agenda for renowned Australian and international speakers to discuss the future of the industry and changing energy needs, and for company leaders to present their business and opportunities for investment to a wide-ranging and influential audience. Register your interest now on the Symposium Web Site to avoid missing out on this inaugural annual mining and resources event. Profits from the conference will be allocated for scholarships for students to enter the resources industry. Symposium is hoping to organise some charter flights to and from Broken Hill. It will be useful if potential attendees who may wish to utilise the charters register their interest. Here is the air charter link for you to express interest.

Dave Suppel passed away on 11 March this year after a three year battle with cancer. Many in the minerals industry would have known Dave as the long-time Principal Geologist Metallic Minerals in the Geological Survey of New South Wales. To encounter a Dave Suppel in a career is to have had an experience one should value for a lifetime. Quality individuals such as Dave are unfortunately rarer than we would like to think. Accordingly, Dave Suppel's death is not only a loss to our professional cadre but also a loss to that small cohort of good men.Obituary
