Innovation and emerging technology within the mining industry will be on display at this year’s IMARC, with the three-day conference and exhibition highlighting some of the leading minds focused on the future of mining.
Mr Mathews said he was looking forward to presenting some of the most exciting new developments in mining technology innovation.
“One thing mining excels at is generating a huge amount of data, but it’s critical that this data is represented in ways that are easy to understand and add value to the decision making process,” Mr Mathews said.
“Having an integration framework enables all of the data generated in a mine to be brought together in a 4D visual representation.
“This year I will be using this framework to show deep integration between the planning and extraction systems using real time GPS loading data to provide plan versus actual comparisons, in real time.
“Augmented reality is another exciting innovation that we can now use to provide a different user experience.
“I will be showing how our customers can use this technology in their business.
“Demonstrating the huge potential of new innovative technology is at the heart of my presentation.”
Mr Mathews will be presenting on Tuesday 31 October at 14:45 alongside a long list of impressive technology and innovation speakers is just the beginning of IMARC’s focus on the future.
IMARC 2017 will also showcase:
- Innovation Alley — a free to attend showcase on the exhibition floor of new innovative technologies improving productivity across the mining value chain.
- Igniting METS Showcase — a two-hour profile of the Igniting METS Accelerator Program, an exciting program bringing together start-ups and SMEs together with leading resources companies focused on innovative solutions.
- Tech Investment Battle — emerging tech companies battle for investment, prizes and industry feedback in from an expert panel including Ric Gros (METS Ignited), Lex McArthur (Jollimont Global Mining Systems), Jonathan Loraine (Core Resources) and Justin Strharsky (Unearthed).
The International Mining and Resources Conference will run from 30 October – 2 November 2017 with the free exhibition running from 31-2.
