The Institute for Advanced Mining Technologies at RWTH Aachen is presenting a new international conference on High Performance Mining, which will take place from Dec 4 to 5, 2018, at the RWTH Aachen University.
The Conference aims to bring international mining operators, suppliers, and experts from research and industry together to discuss current industry challenges and best practices in achieving high productivity and high performance in open pit and underground mining.
Productivity in mining has been declining for the better part of the past two decades and has only recently stabilized. With decreasing ore grades, increasing capital and labor costs, and ever-increasing regulations and stakeholder expectations, running a productive mining operation has not become less challenging.
Achieving high performance requires understanding the levers for productivity and how it can be tracked and measured. Secondly, once measurable, to improve operations requires good mine plans, good management and operational practices to execute the plans, and, most certainly, outstanding technology as an enabler of productive resource extraction.
The High Performance Mining Conference will look at different levers for improving productivity to achieve high performance mining in today’s changing and challenging socio-economic environment.
