November 13–16, 2016
Kobe International Conference Center
Kobe, Japan

Copper production has ramped up rapidly and remarkably over the last decade. Now, the world needs solutions and new thinking to help it grow even further...and do it sustainably.

Our entire industry needs to challenge what we've always done and what has always been. To find more value in our operations with optimized processes, new technology, and sustainability initiatives.

We’re here to help.

Five Hatch experts will share information on the future of copper and the industry-leading expertise that's setting the direction. Join us for their presentations at the upcoming Copper 2016 conference, hosted by The Mining and Materials Processing Institute of Japan and Japan Mining Industry Association.

We’re finding value for companies like yours with smarter, more sustainable solutions for copper mining and processing. Find out what works, and why.
