More than 80 of Australia’s leading mining, equipment, and technology services (METS) companies will showcase the latest in innovation at the Austmine 2021 Conference and Exhibition in Perth from 25-27 May 2021.

For many, Austmine 2021 will be the first opportunity to view products, technology and innovations in person for more than a year. The Austmine Mining Innovation Conference & Exhibition is globally recognised as the go-to event for mining leaders to connect around the strategic priorities, emerging opportunities and cutting-edge technologies that are driving change in the industry.

Austmine CEO, Christine Gibbs Stewart, said the conference will be one of the largest face-to-face gatherings for the industry since the start of the pandemic, offering the resources sector a real opportunity to see new products, learn about the latest innovations, and speak to the experts behind them.

“We say that when the going gets tough, the tough get innovating, and that is exactly what has happened over the last 12 months. Instead of waiting for business to return to normal, many of our members developed new technologies and solutions designed to make it easier to do business in a COVID world,” said Gibbs Stewart.

“The Austmine conference will showcase some of these latest innovations and will highlight just how technologically advanced the mining industry is.

“People often think of mining as an old-fashioned, antiquated industry because of the focus on the perceived low-tech commodity outputs. What they don’t know about is the high-tech inputs needed in order to extract the minerals or commodities in a productive, safe, and sustainable way.

“The Australian METS sector is an industry known for its leading-edge, advanced solutions in such areas as robotics, automation, and all things digital. It contributes more than AUS$100 billion to the Australian economy annually and is a highly internationalised sector exporting to every corner of the globe.

“METS is our own home-grown, hi-tech sector, and innovation drives our success,” Gibbs Stewart said.

With a sharp focus on technology, exhibiting companies are showcasing solutions that will digitally transform operations, enhance decision making through artificial intelligence (AI), improve safety through automation, and manage and track a remote workforce.

Among the attending exhibitors is Centric Mining Systems (Centric) – a suite of tools engineered to work together, to help track and control the entire flow of mining operations – from the point of extraction to the point of transport all from a single screen.
