News: Key industry leaders to descend on Tennant

Be part of the trend to grow and develop the Barkly with a landmark two-day conference

Posted: Wednesday, 4 October 2017

Tennant Creek will host a two-day Barkly Regional Resources and Economic Development Conference at the Civic Hall from 24-25 October.
Convened by Informa Australia, this conference is supported by the Northern Territory Government with the Primary Industries Minister Ken Vowles attending and a welcome address by the Council Mayor Steve Edgington.
With the construction of the Northern Gas pipeline, the re-opening of mothballed mines and the NT Government awarding 'major project' status to several mining projects, the two-day conference comes at a time of abundant opportunities for resources exploration in the region, for infrastructure projects and for agribusiness consolidation.
Mayor Edgington said it is a landmark event for the Barkly region and businesses, bringing together key leaders from the mining, petroleum, pastoral, transport and infrastructure industries under the one roof to discuss the latest opportunities and major project developments.
Topics on the agenda include mining and exploration in the Barkly region, onshore and offshore gas projects, legacy mine remediation and clean-up, overview of the cattle industry, improving competitiveness for local businesses and the role of exploration technology for the future.
There will also be talks scheduled on developing a fertiliser industry, the potential for new crops and farming in the region, development and infrastructure investment and promoting sustainable economic growth
With key contributions from Origin Energy, Jemena, Emmerson Resources, OM Holdings, Verdant Minerals, Geoscience Australia, Deloitte, NT Geological Survey, Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the NT Industry Capability Network, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
Cost is $1450 and all delegates must register online.
