The threat of climate change has meant that it isn't a question of "if" companies will make the energy transition, but instead, when, and how. To achieve net zero targets, climate resilience and decarbonisation strategies are being embedded across the mining value chain.
Technology implementation and challenges and opportunities with analytics, AI and automation all remain of high interest to mining companies, especially as the application of such technologies and innovation continues to be strategically aligned with sustainability and shared value priorities.
With several recent land releases, strong commodity prices, and plenty of projects in development and production phases, opportunity for the sector is positively changing the risk-appetite of investors. Exploration expenditure saw a surge in 2021 totaling $3.6 billion, up 28% from the previous year.
The macro implications from COVID-19 and geopolitical tensions have been felt across the globe with major disruptions on supply chain, workforce, and operational costs. As industry looks to minimise disruptions, there is consensus to implement strategies that will build resilience within the sector.
In a world of growing concerns around the environment, climate change and social impact, mining is in the spotlight now more than ever, placing critical focus on requirements for ESG, credibility and trust, a social license to operate, and sustainable mining practices.
Major labour and skill shortages continue to exist across many areas of the mining value chain, made worse by recent COVID-19 implications and remote working challenges. In addition to the problem of attracting the next generation due to the negative perceptions of the industry and its culture.
Ground-breaking technology, world-class content, and a vivid showcase of all the elements that make the mining industry great. The IMARC Expo is the only place in Australia where you can discover inspiration and new ideas, find practical solutions, and see demonstrations of the latest products and innovations from startups through to some of the biggest names in the mining industry.
