Investors will be given a smorgasbord of opportunities when more than 40 of Australia’s most successful, high-growth resources companies gather at the Resources Rising Stars Conference on the Gold Coast on June 7-8.

In line with this year’s theme of “Be on the Right Side of the Boom”, the conference will feature some of the biggest names in the hottest commodities, including lithium, nickel, copper and critical minerals.

There is also a host of leading ASX-listed gold companies, ranging from early-stage explorers through to project developers and well-established producers.

And there are keynote addresses from top Australian fund manager Hedley Widdup from Lion Selection Group and from former Federal Liberal Party Leader and highly-regarded commentator John Hewson.

The two-day conference will be held on June 7-8 at the RACV Royal Pines Resort. Morning and afternoon tea, lunch and networking drinks are provided each day and there is no attendance fee for investors.

Resources Rising Stars is Australia’s leading investment conference with a strong emphasis on retail investors. Now in its 19th year, the conference prides itself on enabling investors to talk directly to company managing directors, providing an unrivalled opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of the projects, their potential and the investment proposition.

Presenting companies include lithium producer Pilbara Minerals (PLS), copper miner Sandfire Resources (SFR), emerging gold producer Bellevue Gold (BGL) and Chalice Mining (CHN).

Bill Beament, which introduced Northern Star Resources (NST) to RRS delegates when that stock was 20c, will return as managing director of his new company Develop (DVP), with its focus on future-facing metals and mining services.

Among the many other high-growth companies presenting at this year’s conference are nickel miner Mincor Resources (MCR), emerging mineral sands producer Strandline Resources (STA), successful copper explorer Stavely Minerals (SVY) and new gold producer Calidus Resources (CAI).

Uranium explorer DevEx Resources (DEV) will be there along with its Tim Goyder stablemate, lithium developer Liontown Resources (LTR), and Brazilian nickel developer Centaurus Metals (CTM).

Plus there will be a host of new names presenting at the conference for the first time, including new nickel IPO Nordic Nickel (NNL), Codrus Minerals (CDR), E79 Gold Mines (E79), Hammer Metals (HMX), Bellavista Resources (BVR), AusQuest (AQD) and CZR Resources (CZR).
