The Society of Mining Professors / Societät der Bergbaukunde (SOMP) is an active society representing the worldwide academic community committed to making a significant contribution to the future of mining disciplines. The main objective of the society is to ensure the scientific, technical, academic and professional knowledge need to ensure a sustainable supply of minerals to mankind.
This regional meeting of SOMP in Latin America aims to bring the academic mining community and foster growth and collaboration, like to facilitate the exchange of information, research, teaching and collaborative activities among its members.
We believe that this regional meeting would be an excellent opportunity to strengthen the undergraduate and graduate programs in the area of Mineral Resources, the related research groups and a strategy to strengthen mining research in the region in the area of Geology, Mining and Metallurgy.
