Austmine 2023 will challenge our thinking and encourage the industry to have strategic conversations about those key levers that we need to apply to ensure a sustainable future for our industry.

In addition, Austmine is pleased to be working with the South Australian Government to host the 2023 Copper to the World Conference – an annual event delivering unique insights and updates from voices across the Australian and global copper market.

“This important, full-day conference will be held in conjunction with Austmine 2023 and will help to attract even more of an international audience to our event” Ms Gibbs Stewart said.  “We are very appreciative of the Government’s support of the METS sector, and its recognition of the important role it plays in economic growth, investment, innovation and export” she added.

Minister for Energy and Mining the Honourable Tom Koutsantonis congratulated Austmine on staging both major events in Adelaide in 2023.

“This is an exciting time in the industry, recognising the enormous opportunity to grow our supply chains and navigate the future with new technologies, innovation and sustainability.

As South Australia drives industry innovation and technology, our Hydrogen Jobs Plan in the transformative global market will also power our manufacturing capacity and metals industry.

Attracting Industry innovators and investors to South Australia allows us to champion our global leadership across the mining supply chain, boosted by its links to space, defence, machine learning and renewable energy.”
