Third International Future Mining Conference

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2015

The Third International Future Mining Conference 2015 was organised by the AusIMM and UNSW Australia and held in Sydney, NSW from 4–6 November. It followed two successful conferences held in Sydney in 2008 and 2011 and was organised in conjunction with the Second Off-Earth Mining Forum.

The conference addressed innovations and opportunities to transfer scientific and technological developments from other disciplines into the minerals industry. It also examined the human factors and skill needs for future operations, identified possible blue sky scenarios of ‘Mining in the Future’, strategies of mining education and research, novel mining systems and future commodities and directions.
