Until 2013, mining exhibitions were held in Donetsk. The exhibitions "COAL-20XX" and "NEDRA-20XX" alternately replaced each other with an interval of a year. The first one was devoted to the topic of coal, the second - to the problems of development of ore and technogenic deposits. With a lot of convention. As regular participants of these exhibitions, we can say that the participants and visitors of both exhibitions were practically the same. And this year, the exhibition "MININGWORLD UKRAINE" was held in Kyiv for the first time. Exhibitions in this series are widely known throughout the world, including in the countries of the post-USSR. So the central exhibition not only in Kazakhstan, but throughout Central Asia for decades has been the MinigWorld CENTRAL ASIA exhibition, held every autumn in Almaty. And now the MiningWorld exhibition has taken place with us.
