Mining’s Innovation Imperative

Austmine's biennial conference returns to Perth, WA in May 2017 with the new theme: Mining’s Innovation Imperative. Austmine's 2015 conference was one of our most successful to date, bringing together senior level executives from mining companies, METS, government and research organisations. Across 2 days, 50 speakers shared experiences, examples, results and insights into how technology, innovation and collaboration were critical to improving productivity and competitiveness.

The future of the mining industry, both here in Australia and all around the world, depends on the sector's ability to embrace new technologies, to better utilise and fully integrate the systems and technologies we already have and to share ideas and opportunities more transparently. The mining market, as we know, has a new norm that calls for METS, Miners and Research to be more innovative in the way they do business. Austmine 2017 will address this need through engaging networking functions, exciting new technology showcases, interactive presentations and panel discussions and of course, our highly anticipated Austmine Leaders' Dinner and Awards.
