PANEL DISCUSSION | Attracting Investment for Territory Mines

The Northern Territory is a minerals district of world-class potential, and the next generation of Territorian mines represent an excellent path to growth in a post-COVID economic rebound, but this is not without its challenges. Hearing from a cross-section of industry and government, we examine the challenges in securing capital for new mines – both domestic and international – alongside strategic analysis on how we can overcome these barriers, and ensure the delivery of the next generation of Territory mines.
