AIMEX Event Director Brandon Ward said the event provides attendees the opportunity to explore the latest technologies and hear from world leaders across three streams – mining innovation, surface mining and underground mining. “Event attendees will have the opportunity to draw on key insights on the future of mining, discover what emerging technologies and practices are available and better understand how best their operations can stay competitive and sustainable in an ever-changing sector.
