Austmine has assembled a stellar list of speakers to address mining’s crucial technological changes and challenges at its Innovation Roadshow event in Perth in September.
The one-day program kicks off with IGO head of technical services Chris Carr providing high-level insights into the industry’s progress down the energy transition road, and wraps up with a look into the future of mining, quantum computing and robotics by Silicon Valley deep-tech advisor, Mike Kyriacou.
In between, Roy Hill chief operating officer Anthony Kirke will update attendees on progress with a unique, large-scale mine-fleet autonomy venture, and Lithum Australia CEO Simon Linge will present his blueprint for the “critical minerals revolution”.
The program also manages to fit in punchy presentations from some of the industry’s larger and start-up technology leaders, while two panel discussions will no doubt provide plenty of food for thought.
CITIC’s Mark O’Brien, Worley’s Paul Lucey, Thiess’ Shane Clark and Matthew Blackwell from Iluka Resources will pull apart the concept of an “intelligent mine” and what it means for them and their peers in the industry.
And Melanie Johnston-Hollitt, director of the Australian Space Data Analysis Facility, idoba CEO Sarah Coleman, and neutron systems engineer Imogen Rea from Rocket Lab in Auckland, New Zealand, will talk about innovation and opportunities at the increasingly busy intersection of mining and space.
The Austmine event is on September 1 at Perth’s Pan Pacific hotel.
