Join us on June 18-19 as we explore mine electrification, autonomous mining underground, AI integration, and reimagining mine design – under the theme of Igniting action: Building the mines of the Future – today.

In an industry where innovation is key to staying ahead, these topics aren’t just buzzwords ─ they’re the driving forces shaping the future of mining. Imagine a world where emissions are drastically reduced, where autonomous machinery navigates the depths with unparalleled precision, and where AI-driven solutions optimize every aspect of mine operations. That world is closer than you think, and this event is your roadmap to getting there.

It’s Time to Take Action

But this event isn’t just about listening ─ it’s about taking action. It’s about coming together as a community of forward-thinkers to share knowledge, a network dedicated to knowledge sharing and best practice implementation. It’s about harnessing the power of collaboration to drive innovation and shape the future of mining for generations to come.

So, if you’re ready to be at the forefront of change, if you’re eager to explore the possibilities of mine electrification, autonomous mining, AI, and reimagined mine design, then don’t wait another moment.
