The Forum

Diggers & Dealers is a mining investment forum, held annually in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. The event is in its 29th year.

Diggers & Dealers is Australia’s leading mining forum, combining corporate presentations by listed mining and exploration companies alongside a large exhibition area housing over 164 exhibitors from the sector. Delegates include miners, explorers, brokers, bankers, investors, financiers and mining service industries from around the world. A 50 strong media contingent ensures that the proceedings of the Forum are widely reported.

The event provides a unique opportunity for industry professionals to meet and network, visit regional mine sites, engage with media, raise finance, invest in projects and generally engage with the resources sector at an executive level in a mining community setting, Kalgoorlie.

A world class entertainment program ensures that delegates experience the very best of the style and hospitality of Kalgoorlie, the unofficial gold mining capital of Australia.
