The neXTek event held on 26 November was busy, well attended and informative – overall a great day for this inaugural event organised by the MineSpace folk. Many delegates and exhibitors I chatted with really liked the 1 day conference format and the compact exhibition space hosting new and technologically advanced products and services relevant to exploration and mining. Particular favourites were the underground virtual reality experience, a portable self-contained seismic unit and enterprise level 4G communication networks. The Expedio presentation and OCRIS product demonstrations were well received with a lot of interest from delegates unhappy with their current ‘old-school’ data capture and management software products. Expedio would like to announce Tara French from Regis Resources as the winner of our lovely bottle of McLaren Vale red, congratulations Tara! Thankyou to all attendees and organisers of neXTek, and we hope to see you all again next year.
