GMG Forum: SudburyRegister Now »
Jun 12 - Jun 13
Sudbury, Ontario, is located in one of Canada’s top mining regions and is a centre for mining production, research, training and innovation. In conjunction with CIM, GMG will host a forum there on June 12-13.
Sudbury is located in the geologically rich Sudbury Basin, the second largest impact crater in the world. Because of the rich geology in the area, the city grew out of mining (most notably, nickel mining). Mining, particularly underground mining, is still key to Sudbury’s economy and mining companies, suppliers and service providers employ approximately 16 000 people.* Glencore, Vale and KGHM International all have underground operations in Sudbury. Forum participants will hear many case studies and lessons learned as we focus on underground innovation, including BEVs, autonomous mining, integration, AI, cybersecurity and digitization underground.
Driven by the region’s mining operations, the city is also a hub for research organizations and institutions. It is home to Laurentian University’s Goodman School of Mines, Mining Innovation Rehabilitation and Applied Research Corporation (MIRARCO), Northern Centre for Advanced Technology (NORCAT) and the Centre for Excellence in Mining Innovation (CEMI). These organizations and institutions offer opportunities for innovation and provide hands-on experience, offering much to the future of both the Canadian and global mining industries.
