Future Mining

Future Mining

Resourcing Innovation

The 4th International Future Mining Conference will bring together lead researchers, scientists, technology developers, innovators and resources industry leaders together to discuss the integration of advanced technology and operational excellence.

Mining production is crucial for global socio-economic development and is linked to almost every industry value-chain. However, the current climate of sustained global minerals demand, coupled with deeper orebodies and lower ore grades, extreme mining conditions, and a range of social and environmental challenges, presents a series of challenges for the future.

To eliminate and overcome these challenges the resources industry is presented with new opportunities to co-develop emerging technologies with leading research institutions, create new ways of thinking and review approaches toward integrating advanced technologies across the sector.

With many internal and external factors shaping the future of the mining business, the key will be “getting future-ready”.
