Future of Mining Sydney 2018

May 14, 2018 - May 15, 2018


The Future of Mining conference takes place from May 14-15 in Sydney and addresses the key strategic and operational questions from project and operations level management through to the boardroom allowing attendees to discover the latest innovations and technologies which are driving mine productivity, mine efficiency and mine safety today.

Four-hundred-plus mine managers, executives, suppliers and experts will gather to discuss and discover the latest insights and technologies driving mine productivity, mine efficiency and mine safety today and tomorrow.

Join us to explore key issues including:

• Miners are leaner and meaner, with balance sheets cleaner, but are they more agile and ready to deliver better capital returns over the next decade? What are the critical areas of operational excellence, and what does excellence look like?

• How are miners adapting to an era of rapid technological, social and geopolitical change?

• How well are miners equipped to deal with the automation of mines and what impact will this have on current and future mine development?

• How should companies think about upskilling the workforce for digitisation- recruiting, retaining and training new and current talent

Other topics will include: blockchain, AI, visualisation, 3D mine mapping, fast data management, real time analysis, social licence to operate and energy efficiency.
