On behalf of Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development and Renovation Organization (IMIDRO), this is my utmost pleasure to introduce you, Iran Mines and Mining Industries Summit (IMIS 2015) which would take place on May 31 & June 1 2015, in Tehran.
IMIS 2015 will be considered as a prominent event, ever held near two decades of IMIDRO's establishment.
Iran is blessed with abundant mineral and energy recourses, a young, educated and experienced workforce, a relatively untouched market of 75 million population, access to international water ways, low cost labors, a developed infrastructure of roads, railways, ports, power supply and telecommunication network, together with foreign investment friendly laws and regulations; all of which make Iran a particularly attractive country for international investors.
Referring to Iran's mines and mining Industrial potentials, Iran possesses 68 different kinds of minerals. Its proven Iron Ore reserves reach to amount of 2.7 billion tons (0.8% total global reserves) and proven Copper Ore reserves reach to amount of 2.6 billion tons which account of 4% of global reserves. Iran also possesses 11 million tons of Zinc (4% of global reserves). The total proven reserves estimated to 6 billion tones, which together with unexplored 300 000 sq.km2 lands, may reach to more than 10 billion tons. The mines and mining industry have a 25% market share in the Tehran Stock Exchange with a total value of approximately US$30 billion.
