RIU Explorers Conference

Esplanade Hotel Fremantle, WA

14, 15, 16 February 2023

Open to all following two years of capacity restrictions and border closures, the RIU Explorers Conference returns to Fremantle over three days in February 2023 at the perfect time for a junior sector buzzing with investor interest.

More than 130 exhibitors and 90 presentations will take place over the course of three days, allowing investors to get up close with the resources companies set to take the next step in the years to come.

Battery metals, as they were across the board in 2022, loom as a major exploration investment trend in 2023. The EV driven lithium, nickel, graphite and cobalt narratives show no sign of abating, while the intensive copper requirements of a green energy future have some of the world’s biggest miners seemingly falling over themselves to secure red metal supply.

Could 2023 be a year of mineral project consolidation? With a metal intensive future looming large, some experts expect to see action on the M&A front with explorers and developers in the spotlight.

And let’s not forget gold, which at time of writing teeters on record prices in Australian terms. Following an up and down 2022, the yellow metal is once again in vogue as global volatility drives physical bullion demand.

Put all these themes together and you have an electric atmosphere for an event in the heart of the eclectic port city of Fremantle, WA.

Whether you’re reading up ahead of the event or can’t make it in person, Stockhead has you covered.

This event guide offers expert analysis and profiles of ASX-listed resources companies of all shapes and sizes, gearing up for what’s already proving to be a big year for markets in 2023.
