  • Overcoming challenges to drive innovation in the mining industry – how does the industry need to rethink the way it approaches technology?


  • With grades declining in many sectors, coupled with many industries having past peak production, what are the exploration business models that will reinvigorate and drive success and growth in the new mining life cycle?
  • Examining new thinking and approaches to exploration from majors and mid-tiers to meet changing global energy demands
  • Financing the future exploration growth and development of the mining industry
  • Determining the best investment opportunities in the junior mining sector


  • What lessons can the mining industry learn from the other sectors (oil & gas, retail) about driving exploration and innovation?
  • Understanding the key criteria for developing collaborative partnerships in mining to mitigate risk when investing in emerging markets
