The MiningForum, which takes place every two years, brings together decision makers, experts and specialists from the industry together for in-depth dialog. In their lectures, renowned speakers address relevant issues in the national and international commodity market. Alongside this, the specialist exhibition offers companies a platform to present their products and services. The conference was first hosted by DMT in 1991, "in Kelbra which was close by and supported by Schachtbau Nordhausen GmbH," reminisces Managing Director of Schachtbau, Michael Seifert (second from the left).
