    European Minerals Day

    The European Minerals Day is a pan‐European, bi‐annual awareness raising event for the mineral raw materials industry ‐ which welcomed > 30.000 visitors in 180 sites in 32 countries in 2011. 

    This initiative by the European minerals sector and related organisations gives the opportunity to the European-wide public to explore the world of minerals and discover more about an industry that affects every aspect of our lives.

    On 6-8 May, a wide range of sectors and organisations join forces to illustrate the role of mineral raw materials for innovation and resource efficiency throughout the whole life cycle. The exhibition will tell our story, and lead you through the life cycle of a mineral product: From extraction (covering biodiversity and sustainable mining practices), to processing, usage (applications in downstream sectors), to transformation and recycling.

    Date and venue: 6-8 May 2013, JAN 4 Zone Q, European Parliament, Brussels
