GMG Forum: PerthRegister Now »
Aug 14 - Aug 15
GMG will host a forum in August in Perth, Western Australia, one of the top mining areas in Australia in partnership with Austmine and METS Ignited. Australia is a global leader in mining production and innovation.
Mineral commodities account for 77% of Western Australia’s total sales value.* As a large and sparsely populated region with many fly-in/fly-out operations, Western Australia faces challenges with skill shortages. In response, the region has become a front-runner for innovation in remote operations centres, advanced autonomous technologies, underground innovation and test facilities. Rio Tinto, Roy Hill and BHP Billiton all have innovative remote operation centres right in Perth that are leading the way. The region’s experience will be invaluable in discussions of the future of mining that will happen at this forum.
Stay tuned to this page as program details are confirmed.
