  The group departed Moscow for Beijing, via Helsinki, on Friday 23 June, arriving the following morning. They spent waiting time in a local hotel before taking a flight to Lanzhou that same afternoon to overnight, then set out by road for Jinchuan next morning for the 8 hour drive (including rest and meal stops).
  The technical visit was spread over the following day and a half and included briefings, an underground visit and surface traverse across the Jinchuan intrusion.
