International Mine Management Conference 2006

Add to cart
The First International Mine Management Conference stems from a growing concern that managers in the mining industry today must assume increasingly complex responsibilities that are often well beyond the span of their original tertiary education or post-tertiary training, or even past experience. Further, those selected for senior management positions in the industry are increasingly being drawn from professions beyond the traditional mining disciplines.
A second and as yet still emerging feature of the mining industry in recent times is the trend towards consolidation and globalisation. Managers today may expect to work in a range of disparate social and cultural environments during their careers, and must equip themselves accordingly.
Recognising both the reality and the consequences of these evolutionary changes, The AusIMM has chosen to broaden its offering to cover the full range of skills required of professional managers. This Conference is a first, and perhaps somewhat tentative, step in that direction. Reflecting the increasingly international dimension of the task of management, we sought the active support and involvement of our peer institutions in Canada and South Africa. Both responded positively with the result that the Proceedings include useful contributions from both countries. This is by no means a first' in a technical sense, but the promptness of response does confirm a shared interest in developing the skills and performance of mine management around the world.
The topics covered include: Plenary Addresses, Human Resources, Development, Operations, Macroeconomics and Mineral Markets, Marketing, Finance and Administration, Business and Strategic Planning and Sustainable Development.
