It is an opportunity to showcase innovation and development of mining technology, equipment and services to the international mining industry. The biennial conference was last held in Adelaide in 2009 attracting over 270 delegates from 15 countries.Austmine notes: “A mining boom characterised by rapidly escalating costs and the growing realisation that resources needed to feed production growth – people, skills, materials and energy – are finite, is over. A new era beckons, one in which technology plays a leading role in controlling costs, productivity and safety. The technological revolution will make the next mining boom very different to what we’ve seen in the past 30 years. This premier international event will provide unique insights into innovative technologies starting to transform the mining landscape and focus on how the industry can tackle the ever emerging challenges of the global resources sector.”Robert Trzebski is the Austmine 2011 Chair and the Conference Committee members are Andrew Gray, Russell Mineral Equipment, Tom Hunter, Aker Solutions and Tim McLennan, CSIRO Minerals Down Under National Research Flagship.
