Argentina Mining Welcomes Distinguished Professional as Keynote Speaker on Its Upcoming Argentina Mining 2010

Argentina Mining is pleased to confirm an outstanding keynote speaker for
its Argentina Mining 2010 Convention: Mr. Alberto Salas, President of the
Chilean National Society of Mining and the Inter American Society of
Mining. Argentina Mining 2010, the 8th International Convention on
Business Opportunities in Exploration, Geology and Mining, will be held
in San Juan, Argentina from August 31 to September 2, 2010.

Mr. Salas is a Mining Engineer from the University of Chile, and has a
diploma on Corporate Finance from Adolfo Ibanez University. He has over
30 years of experience in private/state mining in Chile. He is an
entrepreneur, college professor, high level executive and director of
mining companies. He was vice-president of the Chilean Institute of
Mining Engineers; director of ENAMI (Chilean National Mining Company) and
from Quebrada Blanca, Carmen de Andacollo and Valle Central mining
companies, as well as president of University of Chile’s Mining Engineers
Foundation. He currently acts as President of the Chilean National
Society of Mining (SONAMI) and also from the Inter American Society of
Mining (SIM).

He will address the audience with a key topic for the Andean Region:
Binational Projects.

Alongside Mr. Salas, over 40 executives and government officials will
gather to provide an overview of mining projects, experiences in CSR from
both mining and exploration and legal topics, all aimed to help
attendants to better understand mining in Argentina, and take advantage
of the geological potential of the country. Other featured speakers will
be Luis Saenz, CEO of Li3 Energy, Ricardo Muhr, Vice President of
Resources from Antofagasta Minerals, Richard Seville, Managing Director
from Orocobre, David Wahl of Southampton Associates, and John Ashburne of
Black Horse Advisors.

A new feature in this edition is a new section called Exploration in
Argentina by province. It will be coordinated by GEMERA (Group of
Exploration Mining Companies) and will consist of two parts, a first
session covering junior exploration companies with active programs, and a
second including the participation of provincial mining authorities as
well as majors of mining municipalities. “We believe that gathering both
the public and private sector can be an enlightening experience for the
participants; they will hear from the actual players of key projects, and
the shapers of mining policy throughout the country, about the current
scene, outlook and challenges,” said Paola Rojas, Manager of Argentina
