NAMHO conferences

Future conferences

NAMHO sponsors annual conferences at which mining topics are presented by NAMHO member organisations and other.  The topics can range from history to geology and include technical as well as social subjects.  The conference usually takes place in late June or July and is organised by one or more clubs or organisations in a different part of the UK or Ireland each year..

When a conference is being planned, a separate site: www.NAMHOconference.org.uk is set up that provides access to booking, programmes, information about visits and lectures.   Depending upon the organisation sponsoring the conference, the booking and information pages may be accessible direct from the menu above under meetings/conferences.
