Technology is heralding a new era in mining, an era fuelled by the pursuit of cost savings, enhanced productivity and safety agendas, and smarter operational approaches. This month's AusAsia-MinTech conference in Perth, Western Australia, will bring together Australian and Asian mining professionals to discuss new technology.

The past two decades have seen dramatic changes in the application of autonomous technologies, with notable leaps forward made in particular over the last two years. From fully automated sites, fleets of more than 100 automated trucks and automated surface drilling through to the arrival of driverless trains in the Pilbara region.

Mining around the world is achieving marvellous results through technology advancements and AusAsia-MinTech on August 26 and 27 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, presented by The ASIA Miner and Mining IQ, will look at some of these advancements.

Presenting various Asian scenarios will be Rio Tinto’s ICT superintendent, Oyu Tolgoi Project Stage 2, Simon Blears; Eldorado Gold’s general manager, White Mountain Operation, Warren Uyen; Petro Vietnam Supervisory Board chairman and Mekong Mining Club representative Oliver Massman; Aspire Mining managing director David Paull; and a representative from Sumatra Copper and Gold.

AusAsia-MinTech will bring together major stakeholders from mining, engineering firms, government and service providers to share case study examples of driving technology and skills advancements within mining projects from across the Asia Pacific region.

Main conference themes will include, but not be limited to:

  • Improving efficiency and managing cost in underground mining through autonomy, communications infrastructure and maintenance practices;
  • Excellence in mine haulage - optimizing your fleet management;
  • Mineral processing - achieving better results through technology and process improvement;
  • Innovation in mining technology throughout Asia;
  • Coal handling and storage;
  • Education and skills to meet global mining standards; and
  • Success stories of establishing mine sites in remote regions across APAC.

If you want to meet more than 150 of your peers from throughout Australia and the APAC region, attend AusAsia-MinTech to learn about the latest technologies used in the mining industry to maximize efficiency and cost savings.

Event sponsors are Dassault Systemes, One Key Resources, Delta-V Experts, Granite Power, Centron Energy, QinetiQ and Bluefield.
