Outback Queensland’s premier mining exhibition will be hosted at Mount Isa’s Buchanan Park events complex from May 30 to June 1, 2019.

Organisers Commerce North West say it will have new format that encompasses a Saturday for the first time.

“With MineX in 2019 to be our 23rd hosting the challenge is always thinking of ways to improve the event for both our exhibitors and sponsors and visitors,” Commerce North West president Travis Crowther said.

“The introduction of a Saturday to the program in 2019 is just one example of our developments; a result of feedback from many businesses across the region who were not able to attend on weekdays.”

Closed to general public for a Trade and Industry Only Day on Thursday, May 30, free access will be provided from 10am Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1.
