TECHNOLOGY: MINE OPTIMISATION
Now, more than ever before, miners, mining contractors and Mining Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) companies are working together to optimise mining operations by way of intelligent mining. Stronger emphasis on doing things smarter during the mining and haulage process has become apparent, especially as companies adopt new technologies, equipment and processes onsite.
This Mine Optimisation conference on Tuesday 29 October is designed for those responsible for technology, information and innovation, but has also been developed for Mine, Operations, Production and Technical managers and engineers to gain insights into how to do things with greater effectiveness and efficiency on site.
TECHNOLOGY: PLANT AND PROCESSING
With minerals processing, the digital plant and effective plant operations becoming more important for mining companies; as well as plant and processing executives playing a much more directive role in mine optimisation; this conference will uncover challenges faced at plant level and discuss critical solutions to overcome these with presentations related to:
- Tailings management;
- Achieving high quality grades;
- Increased throughput performance;
- Effective energy and water management; and
- The future of minerals processing and the plant.
This technology conference on Tuesday 29 October has been designed for Plant, Processing and Metallurgical executives to attend.
TECHNOLOGY: DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
Whilst it is reported that the mining industry may not have embraced “digital transformation” as quickly as some other industries, it is clear now that such changes are happening on both a strategic and operational level; and positive outcomes are undeniable.
From exploration right through to the transportation of ore to customers, mining companies, including those across the mining supply chain, are implementing the latest technologies to better transform their business.
The Digital Transformation conference on Wednesday 30 October will look at digital technologies that:
- Serve the pit to port process;
- Break down the silos;
- Embrace change;
- Extract value from data; and
- Ensure better integration and connectivity.
Developed for leaders of technology, information, innovation, and transformation from both the head office and site level, this stream will look at the application of technologies that contribute to achieving digital transformation goals.
Recent IMARC research and feedback has pointed out the importance of Exploration for industry in 2019, and beyond. More mining companies are looking for the next big deposit by either finding it themselves or forming partnerships and/or acquiring exploration or junior projects.
As a result, this dedicated conference on Wednesday 30 October, and specific exploration sessions in the Investment stream will include key presentations from Geoscience Australia, different state Geological Surveys, Heads of Exploration, Geoscience, and Geology from exploration and mining companies, as well as Mining Equipment Technology & Services (METS) companies supplying advanced exploration technologies.
Complementing IMARC sessions on this topic will also be a host of Mining Spotlights, the Mining Hub Exhibition space, and for the first time at IMARC, a Core Farm; all in the spirit of heightening the importance of exploration for industry.
