Future Mining, Building Tomorrow

The 5th International Future Mining conference will return to Perth, Western Australia in December 2021

The AusIMM and UNSW International Future Mining Conference series has become a very important event in the mining calendar. The conference is unique in its ability to create a global discussion platform attracting multidisciplinary groups to discuss the performance of advanced technologies integrated into mining operations, and sustained innovation with a focus on shaping the future of mining industry.

Mining production is vital for global socio-economic development and is linked to almost every industry value-chain. However, the current climate of sustained global minerals demand, coupled with deeper orebodies and lower ore grades, extreme mining conditions, and a range of social and environmental challenges, presents a series of challenges for the future. To eliminate and overcome these challenges, we aim to create a discussion platform to enable the mining industry to transform scientific knowledge and advanced technologies from other disciplines and industries, into mining systems to retain cost-competitive, safe and environmentally friendly operations.
