GMG Forum: Luleå | March 24-25, 2020

Due to the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, to ensure the health and safety of the mining community, GMG is turning its focus to planning virtual interactive events – details to come soon. Stay tuned to our news page and social media accounts in the coming weeks for information on new events to participate in.

Productivity, safety, social license, workforce and climate change – all burning issues that the mining industry is addressing. What progress is being made? What have we learned?

Under the theme of Building a Better Future, Global Mining Guidelines Group’s Forum Series will address many of today’s burning issues that are impacting the mining industry while solving common challenges that continue to prevent major progress.

In partnership with Business Sweden and SIP STRIM, this 2-day event will feature senior leaders from Accenture, Boliden, IBMIMDEX, LKAB, Luleå University of Technology, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, OZ Minerals, Sandvik and SIP STRIM who will be addressing wide-ranging issues from digital transformation to sustainability and from design thinking to carbon-neutral mining.

Participants will contribute their expertise in interactive sessions and engage with panelists on topics such as blockchain, the power of mindsets, skills gap, underground mining transformation and green technology while experiencing Europe’s latest smart intelligent mining systems in a virtual environment.
