On March 27-29 the delegation of JSC Rosgeologia and its subsidiary JSC Zarubezhgeologia took part in the 2nd International Mining Exhibition and Forum SIMFE-2017 in the Republic of the Sudan in Khartoum.

Within the frames of his report at the plenary meeting, Albert Iskhakov, Director of the Energy Resources and Geoecology Department disclosed an integrated approach to geological risks hedging and geological expenditures optimization.

There were also negotiations with the top managers of International and Sudanese geological exploration and mining companies, which can make potential partners of the Holding. Meetings with the representatives of the Ministry of Mineral Resources of the Sudan and the largest investment funds and banks also took place.

The Republic of the Sudan attracts Rosgeologia due to insufficient geological exploration of the country on one hand, and, on the other hand, due to the vast experience of work of the Holding in this region, its immense geological database, as well as in the light of current Zarubezhgeologia cooperation with the Ministry of Mineral Resources of the Sudan and the plans of creation of an operational service subdivision and a consulting and analytical center in the country.
