New technology and innovation in the Minerals Industry Colloquium

09–10 June 2016 | Emperors Palace Convention Centre

The South African minerals industry finds itself at a crossroad where current levels of productivity and safety, which are driven by current mining and processing methods, will no longer be either socially or economically acceptable.

The future competitiveness of the Southern African minerals industry depends on the application of appropriate and workable technologies, as well as innovative mining and processing methods, that improve safety and productivity. These will be based on process based organisations that are enabled and empowered by increasing levels of real time data and information integrated across the value chain.

This event is aimed at presenting examples of how technology can improve the costs and competiveness of the SA minerals industry, within the next 10 years and technology that is in use now. Not only will it draw on case studies and examples of technology development, but it will also explore innovative ways of applying state of the art technologies from other sectors, to the mining environment.
