MINERALS WEST COAST FORUM DELAYED
Minerals West Coast has decided to postpone its annual forum, initially scheduled for late October 2021, until early 2022.
Last year's forum was held at alert level 2 with a limit of 100 attendants. Unfortunately, due to the new meaning of alert level 2, events like the Minerals West Coast forum can have no more than 50 people in attendance - at this limit, such a forum is not feasible.
At this stage it is difficult to know if or when New Zealand will return to alert level 1, and as such, Minerals West Coast has decided it would be prudent to postpone the forum until early next year - most likely late February or early March.
Once new forum dates have been selected with some degree of confidence they won't need to be shifted, members and the wider industry will be notified, and tickets will be made available.
For Minerals West Coast members, an annual general meeting will still be held on the 28th of October, with some speakers, a social gathering, and a field trip of some description. Members will be notified once this itinerary has been prepared.
