The IMARC 2019 programme covers the entire mining supply chain, from exploration, to investment, production to optimisation through to new technologies and global opportunities. Alongside brand-new conferences on energy, the environment, workforce engagement as well as mine and plant optimisation.
A key focus for 2019, learn how miners are dealing with exploration and development challenges, cross-border transactions, and international investor interest for local projects. Hear about exploration and geological opportunities, and innovative exploration methods.
Setting the tone for 2019, gain direct insights from Rio Tinto’s Kellie Parker and BHP’s Sundeep Singh on how mining companies are responding to different market trends and issues. Also learn how M&As are impacting the mining supply chain and what opportunities are still attracting investors from across the globe.

Hear differing criteria for M&As, JV’s and forming alliances, as well as outlook presentations on various commodities.
Listen to what mining companies are doing to integrate social performance into operations, as well as what they’re doing to be less harmful to the communities and environments in which they operate. Also, gain insights on how to address ESG.
IMARC will feature 5 technology conferences over 3 days discussing mine optimisation, mineral processing, the digital plant, digital transformation, innovation and innovative exploration methods.
Discussing global issues including competing on talent, workforce culture and change management, outdated mining engineering degrees and the cyclical nature of the industry.
