GMSG – SAIMM Forum 2016: Building towards the future of mining
15-16 February 2016
Emperor's Palace, Johannesburg

Currently, the mining sector is embracing a collaborative path forward as a means to effectively address challenges that have arisen from the past decade of technology development, and to meet increasing demands for higher productivity, lower costs, and safe, responsible operations.

Specifically, mining companies are recognizing the need to collaborate towards enabling the integrated operations and autonomous mining most often viewed as the key to a strong future for the industry. This 2-day forum will bring together global innovative leaders working towards industry guidelines, standards, and a consensus vision that are the building blocks for innovation and will enable industry peers to build on the best practices learned globally and collectively eradicate systemic challenges that have arisen through years of siloed development.

This forum will be of interest to all personnel involved in mine, maintenance and operations planning and technology. Participants will learn about current global collaborative projects and hear from industry leaders.

With the mining industry driving change for more effective use of operational resources, while meeting the challenge of ensuring the sustainability of community and the 
environment; we as mining industry professionals need to not only be aware of, but be ready with technology and strategies that place us at the forefront of responsible practice.

We are inviting you to not only attend and listen to the superb line-up of internationally renowned speakers, but share your experiences, challenges and "made-in-mine" innovative strategies, no matter how small, that summed together make a more responsible solution.
