The only global in-pit crushing and conveying focused event of its kind, IPCC 2021 is the sixth edition of a hugely successful conference series.


Building on a strong event in Chile in 2018, IPCC 2021, in Mexico, will once again provide a forum for high-level networking and discussions on IPCC in all its varied forms. This includes high angle conveyors, to semi-mobile and fully-mobile crushing and sizing stations, to IPCC-related systems relating to mining waste management, as well as heap leach material stacking.

The event continues to attract all the major equipment OEMs designing these solutions, mining companies that have seen the benefits of employing this mining technique, and the service companies ensuring all pieces of the IPCC puzzle work in harmony. They will come together in a stellar program that looks at practical examples of how the technologies and solutions have been implemented and the impact of the installations.

Taking place at the Hyatt Zilara, in Cancun, Mexico, the 1.5-day event will bring together IPCC thought leaders in a relaxed setting where discussions can be had, cocktails can be drunk, and deals can be discussed and (hopefully) signed!
