Although the two countries have a seemingly infinite wealth of natural resources, mining companies are still affected by immense political, economical and social challenges. To keep up with the increasing demand, mining Chief Operational Officers (COOs) must sustain resources and improve efficiency of all operational affairs.
Bringing together senior mining executives, consultants and solution providers, the marcus evans Mining Technology & Innovation Summit 2012, taking place in Perth, Australia, 6 - 8 June, offers mining companies an intimate atmosphere for highly focused discussions on the key drivers and issues currently shaping the industry.
The honourable John Howard, 25th Prime Minister of Australia will be present, to discuss leadership in the new century. During his four term period, Howard delivered innovative strategies for international security and a unique economic vision. During the Summit, he will examine the role of world leaders, and how to handle the growing concerns of globalisation, the environment and threats to international security.
The premium forum will provide indispensible insights from industry leaders, such as Brian Hearne, COO at Xstrata Zinc, a global mining company and the world’s largest exporter of thermal coal. Hearne has 23 years of experience in the mining sector and will share his views on preserving sustainability.
Other speakers include Michelle Ash, GM of Operational Excellence at MMHG, who will share her views on solving diversity issues in mining, and Sean Freeman, COO at NSL Consolidated, who will talk on managing the sensitivities of compliance from development to production.
The Mining Technology & Innovation Summit 2012 programme will include presentations on engaging with local communities to provide socio-economic benefits, recalibrating recruitment tactics to bait a younger workforce, catalysing the need for automation and increasing safety and reliability processes. The Summit provides a vigorous agenda of keynote and case study presentations, pre-arranged business meetings, workshops and round table discussions for COOs, Heads of Mining Operations, Directors and Managers of Mines.
The marcus evans attendee-centric approach is designed to ensure all participants obtain maximum value from their participation whilst providing strategic intelligence essential to staying ahead in today’s constantly evolving and competitive marketplace.
An opportunity for mining executives to meet with key industry solution providers and network with ultimate thinkers in the industry, the Mining Technology & Innovation Summit 2012 is one not to be missed.
