ALTA 2022

20-27 May, Perth and Online

Given the continued uncertainty in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, after much consideration we have made the decision to postpone the 26th ALTA Conference to 20-27 May 2022

ALTA 2022 is a world-class annual metallurgical conference, now in its 26th year, and a leading platform for innovation.  ALTA conferences are well-known for providing exceptional opportunities for the industry to share ideas, innovations, technologies and projects, and develop new industry connections.

The emphasis of the carefully crafted program is practical rather than academic, and the themes running through the conference are the various aspects of technology and project development. We are pleased to partner with CSIRO Mineral Resources for the In-Situ Recovery Conference (ISR) and Curtin Gold Technology Group for the Gold-PM Conference. The Uranium-Rare Earths and In-Situ Recovery conferences are organised in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

We are heading back to Perth!

Following our virtual event in 2020, we are excited to return to a face-to-face gathering for ALTA 2022 to be held 20-27 May at the Pan Pacific Perth. We are designing a hybrid format with in-person attendance for Australians and online for internationals. If the Australian borders are open, online registrations may be converted to attend the physical event.
