Mining as a temporary land use: industry-led transitions and repurposing

Mining as a temporary land use: industry-led transitions and repurposing

5 May 2020 12:30pm1:30pm
Post-mining land use and associated economies have become a priority issue in mine lifecycle planning. Julia Keenan from the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining presents on their recent scoping project which started from the position that reconceptualising mine ‘closure’ may enhance the industry’s contribution to sustainable development.

Webinar: Mobilising METS – creating cooperative pathways to customer-centric solutions

1 May 2020 9:00am10:00am
There is great opportunity to expand the depth and breadth of relationships between the METS and Research communities. Global pressures in mining present both opportunity and threat to METS companies looking to grow. The pace of change is fast, challenges are becoming more complex and competition is fierce. New partnership models provide the potential for quicker pathways to commercialisation for research and vital new innovation opportunities for METS companies.

Webinar: A Cooperative Research Centre for Transformations in Mining Economies: So what?

3 April 2020 9:00am10:00am
In March 2020 the Federal Government announced a new $130 million Cooperative Research Centre on Transformations in Mining Economies (CRC TiME). The University of Queensland, through the Sustainable Minerals Institute, led the development of this cooperative research centre in partnership with The University of Western Australia.
This presentation will outline: the basic components of CRC TiME; the game changing value proposition which positions the mining industry as an agent of regional development; and the unique partnership that has drawn in mining companies, technology and service suppliers, state and local governments and groups representative of regional and community interests.

Webinar: On-belt bulk analysis - latest applications and development

27 March 2020 9:00am10:00am
Real time measurement is essential for improved plant control. Bulk ore sorting is automated grade control between the mine and mill and sensing data can be used concurrently for multiple purposes (ore blending, diversion, reconciliation, metal accounting, feed forward control, etc).

Webinar: Climate change mitigation in mining

20 March 2020 9:00am10:00am
Climate change accountability plays a critical role in ensuring the security of the future of minerals supply. Mining has an important position in enabling our modern lifestyle and the development of infrastructure for green technologies; and, therefore, it is important to acknowledge and point out the risk of climate change on mining infrastructure. A comprehensive carbon accounting framework, that takes into consideration all mitigation opportunities, is required to implement climate change mitigation strategies within mining supply chain.
