  • The Future of Mine Autonomy – Creating Tomorrow’s Mine, Today: The industry has recently had its watershed moment with the world’s first automated mine in Mali. Automation programs are being developed and supported with further resources in mining companies across the globe and a head of a mine automation program will discuss how their company plans to make automated mining a reality.

What steps can we as an industry take towards breaking down barriers and being more open to real collaboration and sharing information?

  • Building a Modern Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) - Mitigating the Risk for both Communities and Miners: How can the risk of TSF failure be managed from the outset? Where is the management and review of existing TSFs falling short?
