Iron Ore 2017

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2017

Iron Ore 2017, held from 24¬–26 July in Perth, Australia¬¬ was the latest in the well-established international iron ore conference series jointly organised by The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (the AusIMM) and CSIRO.

These conferences are an important biennial event featuring the latest developments in the genesis, geology, exploration, mining and processing of iron ores, bringing together geologists, geophysicists, geochemists, geostatisticians, mining engineers, mineralogists, metallurgists, managers, operators, consultants, research providers, engineering companies, equipment manufacturers, and analytical and metallurgical service providers involved in all aspects of the iron ore industry. The theme of the conference this year is ‘Building Resilience’, which is particularly relevant in the current challenging climate of fluctuating iron ore prices.

The papers included in these conference proceedings comprise a range of keynote papers from iron ore producers, consumers, government and market analysts, as well as more than 80 technical papers. As per previous conferences, technical papers were sought from a wide range of areas, including geology, geostatistics and ore reserve estimation, ore characterisation, mining, processing, automation, project optimisation and development, health and safety, environment and community, technical marketing, logistics, utilities and new equipment.
