Life of Mine Conference 2021

Achieving sustainable outcomes during and after mining

Building on the success of the four previous Life of Mine Conferences, the AusIMM and the University of Queensland will host the fifth in this series in Brisbane and online in April 2021.

Embracing the opportunity to provide world-leading professional development and networking opportunities to the global resources community, the Life of Mine Conference will be delivered in a hybrid event format. Delegates will now be able to attend in person or access the conference content wherever they are in the world.

The Life of Mine Conference will explore the full life-cycle of a mine, from exploration to rehabilitation. The program will aim to address current and future challenges impacting the mining value chain by showcasing leading examples of sustainability in mining.

A key aim of this conference series is to promote leading examples and case studies of applying interdisciplinary approaches that enhance outcomes, increase efficiencies and improve effectiveness to address current and future challenges facing the industry. These challenges include increasing cost and production pressures, technical factors, and societal and community expectations.

The conference is organised in collaboration with The University of Queensland’s Sustainable Minerals’ Centre for Mined Land Rehabilitation (CMLR) and, with the additional joint support of the AusIMM’s Southern Queensland Branch and Social and Environment Society.
