The inaugural AusIMM Africa Australia Technical Mining Conference 2015 is the foremost conference addressing the technological gap in the relationship between the African and Australian mining industries.
The AusIMM Africa Australia Technical Mining Conference 2015 will provide mining and allied professionals from Africa and Australia with a forum for high-level technology knowledge transfer, collaboration, cooperation, as well as valuable networking opportunities.
With more than 230 Australian companies involved in mining projects in about 40 African countries, this footprint covers involvement in some 620 mines and exploration projects. Australian resources projects in Africa are worth more than $40 billion with billions of dollars more in the pipeline. According to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Australian companies hold about 40% of Africa’s internationally owned mining projects, more than any other country.
The AusIMM Africa Australia Technical Mining Conference 2015 will provide a forum for technology knowledge transfer, collaboration, cooperation, networking and other opportunities among mining and allied professionals in Africa and Australia. This conference will go a long way to enhance Australia’s understanding of the mining industry in Africa and vice-versa.
The aim of this conference is to attract exploration, environmental, metallurgical and mining professionals as well as government technocrats from Africa and Australia to share their experiences in their respective fields. The organising committee for the AusIMM Africa Australia Technical Mining Conference 2015 plans to build the conference around the theme ‘bridging the technology divide through collaboration’.
The future of mining depends upon skilled professionals developing practical and innovative methods in all aspects of the mining value chain to ensure the sustainability of the industry. This conference will feature technical presentations from professionals in Australia and Africa covering a wide range of themes.
