2018 Clermont-Ferrand !

This year the SIM exhibition will take place in Clermont-Ferrand in a central region with many cities such as Lyon, Bordeaux, Montpellier or even Paris located at similar distance. It will attract a large number of quarry operators.

Auvergne has also a rich geological heritage that gives it a varied Mineral Industry. Alluvial, massive rock, pozzolana and industrial minerals represent all the quarries of the region.

In addition, the region is engaged in an economic activity around the Michelin Manufacture which brings it an industrial dynamism and an international reputation.

Finally, located at the heart of the largest regional natural park in France, the region has developed a respectful environmental policy and is also involved in the recycling industry.

“Which mineral resources and with what technologies to produce them in the years to come?” This will be the theme of the 67th Mineral Industry Congress.
