Mining Technology and Operations Summit:
Tactical Insights into the Mining Industry


With commodities prices at record highs, the global hunger for natural resources from Australia and New Zealand has led to a strong growth in the mining industry, with the investment boom expected to grow for at least another year.

Yet it is not necessarily the best of times for mining companies, which could have better capitalised on the boom if it had not been for the shortage of skilled workers, the issue of escalating wages and the lack of clarity on the government’s bureaucratic decision-making process. In this landscape, sharing knowledge and best practices with peers has become essential for ensuring prosperity.

At the upcoming marcus evans Mining Technology and Operations Summit 2012, in Queensland, Australia, 26 - 27 November, senior decision-makers will gather to network and discuss the issues plaguing the industry today.

The two-day premium event will feature Professor Christine Charles, Chair, Resources Technology Innovation Centre, Jock Cunningham, Mining Automation Expert, CSIRO, and Howard Renshaw, MD, Queensland Mining Corporation.

Dr Peter Knights, Chairman & Professor of Mining Engineering, BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) & University of Queensland, as well as Ross McAree, Program Leader, Automation, CRC Mining, and Tom Price, Global Commodities Analyst, UBS Investment Bank will also present at the Summit.

The marcus evans Mining Technology and Operations Summit 2012 will bring mining COOs and solution and service providers together for focused discussions on key new drivers shaping the industry. This has proven to be a very successful format for attendees. After the marcus evans mining Summit in Australia in June 2012, an executive from Relegen Pty Ltd said: “A unique format that gives you the opportunity to meet industry leaders and experts and learn a great deal from their insights”, while Schneider Electric (Australia) Pty Ltd’s comments were: “The one on one meetings were productive and the delegates were of a very high calibre.”

Extrin Consultants also spoke highly of the June Summit, saying the event “Exceeded expectations in terms of information transfer.” BHP Billiton considered it to be “Really 3 productive days”, while Donaldson Coal’s feedback was that the Summit “Provides a forum to connect with companies and technology that may not be on your radar.”

To thrive in this sector, mining COOs are expected to augment production and improve efficiency at all levels of their company’s operational affairs, however this is proving to be a challenge for many of them. The marcus evans Mining Technology and Operations Summit 2012 may give them the cutting-edge insights and strategies to do just that.
