Senegal welcomes CIM and Franco-Mine


CIM and its Dakar branch will hold the first Franco-Mine edition in Senegal on Nov. 5, 2014. The event will take place during the third Senegal International Mining Conference & Exhibition (SIM Senegal 2014) at the King Fahd Palace Hotel auditorium in Dakar from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. This symposium will open with a plenary session on mining site rehabilitation, followed by a plenary session on local procurement, and will present models developed in Canada and abroad. Discussions with the audience will follow each session.Launched in 2012 in Toronto, Franco-Mine provides a dialogue-based knowledge-sharing platform between small and medium enterprises, investors, governments, partners and other stakeholders of the mining industry in French-speaking countries. Franco-Mine addresses a wide range of issues related to responsible exploration and mining such as vocational training, supply chain and best practices in both the public and private sectors.
