The Forum, the most important event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, was the brainchild of the late Geoffrey J. Stokes. A delegation of 150 back in 1992 has now reached a record high of 1900 for the three-day and three-night event. The Forum has developed into an enduring mining industry event, thanks in no small part to the support of industry leaders worldwide.
