The 3rd Digital Mines Conference, hosted by Chartered Institute of Professional Certifications, is set to take place on 17-19 April 2024 in Perth and brings together experts in mining technology.

This three-day conference is a unique opportunity to glimpse into the future of the mining industry. Attendees will discover how digitalisation and automation are transforming mining operations, improving efficiency, enhancing safety, and reducing environmental impact.

Through keynote speeches, panel discussions, and case study presentations, participants will explore the latest innovations in AI-driven exploration, collaborative robotics in mineral processing, automated heavy machinery from pit to port, drones for mining surveillance, wearable devices, and more. There will be dedicated tracks covering surface mining, underground mining, mineral processing, tailings management, mine rehabilitation, and the role of renewable energy and battery storage.

Participants will be granted an exclusive chance to listen to pioneering leaders in the field, delve into real-life Australian case studies, and participate in stimulating discussions on the most urgent issues surrounding digital technology in mining. It will showcase examples of leading mining companies harnessing automation and real-time data to gain actionable insights and drive step-change improvements.

This is a premier gathering to engage with those at the cutting edge of mining technology. It is the perfect forum to forge connections, exchange ideas, and walk away inspired to transform mining operations using the power of autonomy and digitalisation.
