Announcing In-Pit Crushing and Conveying 2018!

With the mining industry mood picking up, the level of interest in IPCC solutions is again increasing, and some high profile projects in Chile, Peru and Brazil are now well advanced. In the technology part of the industry, there has been some significant consolidation of key players. Thus International Mining Events is very pleased to announce our fifth IPCC conference will be held on 26/27 April 2018 in Santiago, Chile, some four years after the last event in South Africa. The timing is at the end of Expomin week in Santiago, giving delegates the chance to attend one of the most important Latin American mining shows first, before rounding off their time in Chile with our focussed mining technology conference. Today there is much more of an acceptance that applying elements of IPCC to a conventional truck and shovel operation is just as valid as an IPCC-only mine; while progress in mine automation also brings a lot of potential for IPCC with more efficient and better adhered to long term mine planning. Already the conference is shaping up to be one of the most successful to date. Paper offers are still welcome to IM Events Director Paul Moore at [email protected] while delegates can be registered at the below link. There are also numerous sponsorship opportunities available, including a limited number of exhibition booths. Please get in touch if potentially interested.

The current list of speakers is included below and the latest advertisements feature in the January and February 2018 issues of International Mining  and Mineria Chilena.
