Future of Mining Conference

Aspermont (the publisher of Australia's Mining Monthly and Mining Magazine) has been driving the Future of Mining debate digitally since the launch of the Future of Mining digital content hub in 2016. Our Future of Mining event continues this important debate in a new forum.

We will address jurisdictional and governance changes and showcase the new developments affecting the mining industry in 2 days of independent, curated content with the world's leading experts and the most influential key-note speakers, guaranteed to bring fresh new perspectives and to challenge conventional thinking.

This is a unique opportunity to come together in a content driven setting to hear case studies, peer led discussions, and get insights into the latest innovation and technology which are driving mine productivity, efficiency and safety today. By showcasing new cutting edge trends and addressing catalysts for future change, we identify your growth opportunities and discuss the challenges and disruptions inherent to all strategic planning.

Our platform is the stage on which innovators who develop future mining solutions meet industry participants facing challenges now and provides the opportunity for both to engage with mining decision makers and purchasers looking for ways to deliver greater returns for their operation. We differ from the standard equipment exhibition, as we offer every one of our innovative suppliers a chance to demonstrate the applications of their products in the context of the future of mining to innovative operators.
