About the conference

NewGenGold is the world’s pre-eminent gold exploration conference held in November of every second year in Perth, Western Australia. The first in the biennial conference series was held in 1995 under the title of New Generation Gold Mines and the acronym NewGenGold was invoked in 2001. The event is jointly organised by Paydirt Media Pty Ltd and the conference founder, Keith Yates & Associates Pty Ltd.

An invaluable forum for the professional development of geoscientists, the conference is focused on discovery case histories of the world’s most recent gold mines or soon-to-be mines. A programme of sixteen 45 minute papers is presented over two days, each addressing the where-why-and-how of the discovery process leading to the world’s more important gold deposits. A publication of proceedings is available for each event.

The continued success and popularity of the conference proves the motivational nature of discovery case histories for geologists from all levels of the gold exploration and production business. Consequently, it attracts strong attendance of delegates from around the globe and the sponsorship and support of major international gold producers.

Significance of the NewGenGold logo

The NewGenGold logo is a stylized version of the alchemy symbol for gold, one of the seven planetary metals. The symbol, a circle with a dot at its centre, was also used in ancient astrology as a representation of the sun.

Host City: Perth, WA

Western Australia was recognised as the leading mining jurisdiction in the world-Fraser Institute 2020.
Known as Australia’s mining capital, what better place to host NewGenGold, than Perth, a city hosting a large majority of Australia’s mining companies and located just a stone throw away from several mine sites where everything happens.

Perth is a living picture postcard, situated beside the Swan River, with the best views of all from Kings Park and Botanic Garden which is one of the biggest inner-city parks in the world. The free CAT bus services within the city mean that you can easily visit museums, art galleries, retail outlets, bars, restaurants and cafes and the Perth Mint – home to the world’s greatest collection of gold bars.
