Conference Proceedings
Published in 2008

The First International Future Mining Conference and Exhibition proceedings discuss the future needs of the international mining industry, and current and prospective innovations in the mining industry. In addition, the papers aim to present new scientific and technological developments from other disciplines which may find application within the mining industry. The proceedings will be of interest to researchers, senior engineers, technical managers, economists, scientists, equipment manufacturers, government representatives and other stakeholders.


Topics covered by these proceedings include future mining scenarios, innovation, challenges and opportunities and needs and issues in 2025 and beyond. It is intended that this conference will be repeated at regular intervals in the future, in order to pursue these important initiatives through ongoing international presentations and discussions across the mining industry.
