Cameron Harris, Ph.D.

President, Director, Technical Expert

who will deliver a presentation on:

The Mining Industry: so We’ve Survived… What Now?

 

Abstract: The extended downturn in metals prices has presented great challenges to the mining industry, but has delivered positive outcomes, from the necessary trimming of cost to ensure survival, in the form of significantly increased productivity, and improved focus on core business. However, less apparent negative outcomes are beginning to surface that are likely to threaten recovery as the tough times depart us.

Opinions about the manner in which the industry comes out of the trough and the actions needed to be taken to best profit from the recovery will be offered. Topics such as the impact of advanced technology, efficiency vs redundancy, optimization vs complexity, loss of skills, and short-term market expectations vs growth will be addressed.
