Expomin 2018 - Austmine Smart Mining Networking Event

Expomin 2018 - Austmine Smart Mining Networking Event

Austmine and Austrade are excited to welcome Australian METS companies to a Smart Mining Networking event in Santiago, Chile on Wednesday 25th April.  This takes place during Expomin 2018, the largest mining trade show in South America, providing further business opportunities for companies attending the major exhibition.

Contact Robert Trzebski, COO at Austmine for more information or to register. 

The event will feature an opening presentation from Oscar Castaneda, Strategy Technology Director at CODELCO. Oscar plays a key role in CODELCO's current digital transformation program that the miner is undertaking to set themselves up for future growth and sustainability. His role includes various strategic initiatives such as identifying technology challenges in the mining process, responsible design and implementation of the technologies project portfolio, coordinating multi-disciplinary technology project teams and defining technical bases to establish technologies contracts and alliances with METS. Oscar's presentation will detail the current programs that CODELCO are focusing on to leverage new innovations to drive greater performance at their operations, along with exploring future initiatives and upcoming programs to optimise procedures. 

We will then move into a Mining Innovation panel discussion featuring leading Chilean industry experts. This will be an informative session that will offer Australian METS greater insights into the current pressing challenges in the mining sector, the innovation landscape and driving forces of change, needs and focus of major mining companies and comparisons between the Chilean and Australian market. 

Joining Oscar on the panel are: 

  • Dr Orlando Jiménez, Executive Director, CSIRO
