E-mail to expert committee:


Through its members, the expert committee on deposits and raw material economy bundles industrial, governmental, and academic know-how in the field of mineral and especially metallic primary as well as secondary raw materials from deposit research to exploration as well as the resulting economic and ecological evaluations.

One of its fundamental tasks is the linking-up of the existing know-how of the many people involved in the industry and academic sector.

The expert committee establishes contact between members of varying expertise and qualifications as well as between partners in the industry, the authorities, and scientific institutions. The expert committee is very international and also wants to encourage young GDMB members to become active in the field of the exploration and extraction of mineral raw materials at home and abroad. Its tasks also include the identification of new and practice-related research topics.

The expert committee meets at least once a year and usually during expert conferences.
