ALTA 2022

20-27 May, Perth and Online

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 to share ideas and develop new connections.

The carefully crafted program is practically oriented rather than academic, and the themes running through the conferences reflect key current and developing technology trends. 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 organized in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

We are heading back to Perth!

Following our all virtual event in 2020, we are excited to return to a face-to-face gathering for ALTA 2022 to be held 22-26 May (Note: Sunday-Thursday) at the Pan Pacific Perth. We have adopted a hybrid format with in-person attendance for both Australian and international delegates.  Virtual participation will be available for internationals who are unable to travel.

The short courses will be presented on line only on 20, 21 and 27 May, and recordings will also be accessible to attendees post conference.
