YMP has chapters across the Globe. Whilst every chapter is independent we come together through various events and forums throughout the year.




Young Mining Professionals (YMP) is a growing international association of mining professionals based in major mining centres across the world, that share the goal of advancing the global profile and leadership of the mining and exploration industry. YMP was established to assist participants in obtaining the skills, support and knowledge to successfully advance their careers, develop a network of contacts within the industry, and identify career and mining-related investment opportunities.



YMP Hosts several events throughout the year and across the world. Please see below for our list of our upcoming events. If you would like to attend, please do sign up early to avoid disappointment.

Annual Awards

The YMP Awards, presented in association with The Northern Miner, recognize two young mining professionals, a male and a female, who over the past year, and during the course of their careers, have demonstrated exceptional leadership skills and innovative thinking to provide value for their companies and shareholders, as well as for themselves. The Awards are named after two iconic entrepreneurs in the mining industry, Peter Munk and Eira Thomas.
