Hong Kong is a very interesting location at this precise moment in time, obviously very close to China, and I think that people are going to start seeing that there is a fair bit of money [here] wanting to invest in the industry, so I think [the event] is really well-placed to assist with that. The forum's got to such a size now that there are all kinds of decent people you get to meet, so I think it's a very valuable and worthwhile conference.
It's an excellent conference. It brings together people from areas that, [with] Goldcorp being more focused in the Americas, we don't get to meet.
This is a very good conference and it's something we need to participate more in. We need to be here, so that we can meet the miners, and bring the financial capital together with their needs
“I attended the Mines and Money Hong Kong Conference for a second time in 2012 and I was astounded by the size, quality and organisation of the conference. The keynote speakers were a huge highlight yet again, and the representation of a wide spectrum of resource focused companies made it a very interesting few days of meetings and discussions for Oceanic Asset Management. I look forward to next year’s conference.”
Investment Manager, Oceanic Asset Management
“Mines & Money Hong Kong grows from strength to strength - definitely the "go-to" event of the year - very efficient organisation and always lots of interesting presentations.”

The event also allowed for industry personnel to gather, compare new technology and review projects.”
MD, Tigris Gold

From the Canaccord BGF perspective, it is the most important gathering in the Asian/Australian
time zone, making it an essential opportunity to bring companies together to access the strongest
growth region in the world.”

Chairman, Asia Star Capital
“Mines and Money Hong Kong is the best opportunity for Chinese and foreign mining firms to gain a better understanding of one another and find ways of cooperating. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet with both established and up and coming firms from within China and around the world. Its emergence as one of the premiere mining events of the year points to Asia's increasing importance in the global mining market. It is not to be missed by anyone in the industry.”
MD, Elaixin Holdings
“Mines and Money Hong Kong is the undisputed centre of mining investment activity for Asia every year. It is the anchor tenant of the greatest mining investment bazaar in Asia where many others have created their own events and sideshows in the week surrounding the event. Its unparalleled ability to bring the best collection of investors, mining opportunities and information gathering has made the week it occurs "Mining Week in Hong Kong." If you only make one trip to Asia for mining a year, this event is the king.”
“Mines and Money Hong Kong 2012 was an organisational masterpiece with 2,700 registrants moving among 300 exhibitors and hundreds of presentations. Kudos to Beacon Events and Aspermont! The awards presented at the dinner to Mongolia, Mongolian-based entities and Hunnu with its "9-bagger" sale of Mongolian assets were well deserved! We will certainly be with you again at Mines and Money Hong Kong 2013!”
“I would say the event is a “must-go” for all those engaged in the industry. In particular I found the panel discussion, ‘Exploring investor appetite for African investment opportunities’, held on March 23, 2012 afternoon very good.”
Project Manager, CITIC United Asia Investments
“I thought the corporate attendance was great both in terms of industry and geographical representation. There were also some good keynote speeches by prominent figures in the industry. Overall I think it was a good conference.”
“In my view, this is the best conference of its kind globally. The meeting of the source and destination of capital at a time of dramatic change in the global economy provides a unique opportunity for mining companies and investors.”
Contango Asset Management
“The Mines and Money Hong Kong conference is now quite simply the mining conference to attend in Asia. It successfully brings together Australasian projects with an ever increasing number of projects from the Americas and marries these with more and more relevant sources of capital from all over Asia.”
Director, Bromius Capital
“I believe Mines and Money Hong Kong is probably the best run, most interesting and best managed mining conference of all I have attended since the early 90s. I believe it will become the premiere “must-attend” mining conference in the world. So having maintained and supported and financed so many early stage mining companies that have become some of the largest in the interim, this has become a key conference on my calendar.”
"I travelled to this year’s Mines and Money event in Hong Kong in search of a project for one of our listed companies. I walked away from the conference with three potential assets. On the surface each of these may be suitable for acquisition for our ASX listed client. The event is structured such that one can choose to view the presentations which arouse interest, or catch up with the myriad of resource companies and broking houses in the booths outside the presentation hall. This year the event was bigger than last. Unlike other events at Mines and Money you get just that, no hassle from service providers. It makes life easier. Hong Kong is also a great place to have a night on the town with friends in the industry."
Associate Director, Cygnet Capital
“I found the conference extremely useful. Many of the presentations were immensely informative and stimulating, and as usual the large number of exhibitors in attendance provided a valuable opportunity to follow up on the presentations as well as to test new investment themes. I look forward to attending once again next year as well as your event in Beijing.”
Managing Partner, Composite Capital
“This year’s show provided our fund with a couple unique opportunities we are following up on. Again, well organised and well attended!”

Managing Director, du Pasquier & Co., Inc.
“As always the conference was very well organised and provided me with a great opportunity to network with new and existing contacts. I was able to reconnect and follow up with contacts met at last year’s conference and have developed important new relationships at this year’s. The presentations I attended were informative, relevant and insightful. It is has become the premier regional conference and I can see it getting bigger and better each year.”
“My team found your conference to be the best conference they have attended in the past two years in what increasingly seems like a sea of conferences. I am not surprised your attendance was up as the days spent at the conference were the best investment in time investment professionals could make.”
“Mines & Money in Hong Kong is one of the two or three must attend global mining conferences.”
Managing Director, Lion Manager
“The Mines and Money Hong Kong conference was a tour de force! An intensive feast of information on the resource sector and different commodities. Very well organised at a superb venue with expert inspirational speakers from around the globe giving particular insight to Asia and China with great networking opportunities in an informal and friendly atmosphere. It was important for me as a small private investor understanding the resource sector and helped me identify what to look for in investing in resource projects, project development & funding, management, commodities, macro-economics, etc. What more can i say, apart from don't miss it if you’re serious about investing in this sector. A huge learning curve in a short space of time!”
“There is no question that Mines & Money Hong Kong is fast establishing itself as a networking event worthy of comparison with more established conferences such as Indaba and Diggers & Dealers. It is certainly a must in my calendar.”
Director, Taurus Funds Management

“The Conference and Exhibition is now, as is obvious from the number and calibre of exhibitors and delegates, firmly established as an event that attracts the most important participants in, and followers of the mining industry, not only in Asia, but from across the world. Mines and Money is to be congratulated on promoting such a successful programme that attracts such a wide following. The increased number of delegates over 2011 demonstrates the success of the Annual Mines and Money Conference, now firmly established in the calendar of those in the industry. As a representative of the mining companies focussed on the Asia-Pacific I wish Mines and Money every success in continuing to stage this important Conference to the ongoing benefit to the many related interests in the industry.”
Ian W Ross
Chairman, Indochine Mining
“As you are aware I recently attended the Mines and Money Conference in Hong Kong, on every level I found the investment of time in travelling to Hong Kong thoroughly worthwhile.
Whilst the company specific speakers were worthwhile I thought the credentials , subject matter and delivery of several of the keynote addresses was superb, in particular the address on day two regarding the policy options available to the Chinese Government, delivered by the head of JP Morgan in China along with the papers from Robert Friedland, GVK , FMG and Teck Resources.
There were several consistent themes which were interesting, hard or soft landing in China the emergence of Mongolia and others. Beyond the speakers the conference set up was fantastic with several companies we have interest in both small and large having booths to catch with all these people and other colleagues from the market in a central location was very useful .”
Portfolio Manager, Bizzell Capital
“I am writing to congratulate you and your team on the excellent "Mines and Money 2012" in Hong Kong. Of all the mining conferences I have to attend around the world, this by far, outstrips them all in excellence. Not only are the speakers you have chosen at the top of their game and teach us all something new every time, but the calibre of people that one meets at Mines and Money, is by far superior to any other mining event that I attend.
My colleagues and I found no less than 4 potential investments for our clients from the company presentations and booths. We also found it impressive that the catering was of such high quality which allowed all delegates to remain within the hall at mealtimes, thereby permitting more interaction with others.
We will definitely be making this an annual event. I believe M&M to be an excellent platform from which to make new contacts and inroads for business for the rest of the year.
Congratulations again on an outstanding conference.”
Managing Director, AfricAsia Capital

"Mines and Money Hong Kong has emerged as the premier showcase for Asian investors and ASX listed companies in the resource space and Argonaut’s sponsorship of the Mines and Money conference in Hong Kong was a huge success and we look forward to continuing for many years to build on our franchise at this resource conference & exhibition. The event is becoming as important a destination for Australian resource companies as PDAC is for North America and Indaba is for Africa and it continued to attract a broad range of Asian investors.”
Senior Institutional Dealer, Argonaut Securities

“As a gold sponsor of the 2011 Mines and Money Hong Kong conference BGF Equities was delighted to see a large number of our high conviction ASX corporates supporting the event. Our investor client base was well represented and I have had only very positive feedback from all parties. This event has been on a fast evolving trend since inception but the move this year to the Convention Centre has proven transformational. Hong Kong is fast emerging as a major financial hub for the global emerging resource industries and the Mines and Money Hong Kong conference is now a central component of this. This conference will continue to get our full support in the future.”
Executive Director, BGF Equities HK
“The Mines and Money Hong Kong conference you delivered was unique and has had our clients asking for more. Some of our client’s feedback says it all, ‘it has been one of the most memorable events I have ever experienced’; ‘you just had to be there’; ‘we knew Mines and Money Hong Kong would deliver the quality of investors we have come to expect, but this one has blown us away’"
Managing Director, Purple Communications
"2011 was a breakthrough year for Mines & Money in Hong Kong. Previous years were worthwhile, but this has become an essential event. You could tell from the beginning talks, when two mining billionaires told their companies stories, back-to-back. What a treat to have this now in Hong Kong."
