Austmine 2017

As the dust settles on Austmine 2017, Austmine is proud to reflect on what was an extremely positive and successful conference, focussing on the importance of innovation in the mining industry.

With 840+ delegates (both national and international), including delegates from over 50+ mining companies, Perth Exhibition Centre was transformed into a “who’s who” of the mining industry and mining innovation professionals.

For 2 full days, delegates were treated to the very latest in insights, technologies, industry disruptors, opinions and a general call to action regarding the desire and need for a continued focus on mining collaboration and innovation in order to continue to drive the industry forward.

The need to remain committed to collaboration and a thirst for innovative solutions to the myriad of interesting and challenging industry issues, to utilise the very latest in technology and innovative solutions offered and to continue to work together as an industry to work on new technologies and innovative solutions to address them, were key themes derived from the many conversations had over the course of the conference.

High level discussions on the underground and open cut mine of the future, transforming mining through innovation, learning about advances and the digital mine as well as integrating innovation, technology, systems and people, there certainly was something for everyone in considering the mines of today versus how the mines of the future might look and how METS and miners working together will play an integral role in shaping the desired outcomes.

Energised by the electric atmosphere and thought provoking insights of the conference, the Austmine team is already working on the theme for Austmine 2019!

Thanks to everyone who participated and made it the success that it was!

A full post show report will be available soon so make sure you keep an eye out.
