Whether research, extractives sectors through to exploration geologists operating in desert, jungle, mountainous and arctic environments,  these organisations has a number of factors in common, from planning to delivery, incident response, safety standards, through to some services arranged whilst deployed - often including accommodation, transport, drivers and more.  The 2019 C:ORE Risk Conference focuses on a number of these areas of risk. At the conference, there will be an opportunity for all of those delegates attending the conference, who have a focus on exploration, to network in a facilitated session and join a supportive network to assist each other going forwards, with those focus groups feeding back in to the 2020 C:ORE Risk Conference to present on issues that have arisen during the previous year and safety themes, as well as an opportunity to submit proposals for 2020 C:ORE Risk Conference speakers and subjects that you would like to see covered.

The C:ORE Risk Conference is highly relevant to those involved in exploration, whether being deployed as an employee, to those responsible for planning and/or operational delivery and safety of the project.
