AusIMM’s Underground Operators Conference 2023 brought mining industry professionals the opportunity to see industry leading speakers, including keynotes from Corrie Pitzer, Joe Luxford and Jo-Anne Dudley.
Key discussion topics for 2023 centred around the evolution of digital technologies, automation and artificial intelligence, and how these innovations are making it possible to mine at greater depths and lower grades.
This included key themes around case studies and operating practice, technology and innovation, collaboration, feasibility studies and mine design, health and safety and navigating social licenses.
