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.

The professional development theme is consistently focussed on the 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 process leading to the discovery of many of the world’s more important gold deposits. A volume of proceedings is published for each event.

Case histories of discovery are very motivational for geologists from all levels of the gold exploration and production business. Consequently the conference attracts strong attendance of delegates from around the globe and the sponsorship and support of major international gold producers.

Host City: Perth

Known as Australia’s mining capital, what better place to host Latin America Down Under, 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.
