About The Conference

COVID-19 Information for our attendees & partners

Digital transformation is emerging as a driver of sweeping change in the world across many traditional industries. Within the mining industry, digitalization is becoming a force that changes the nature of companies and their interaction with employees, communities, government and the environment at every step of the value chain. From mineral exploration and valuation, through mining, ore processing and production, to satellite remote control and sensing, digitalization is blurring traditional industry lines and challenging the business models of the past.

Following the success of our first edition Digital Mines Conference in 2019, and to help mining companies align their strategy and operations towards innovation and extract further value from the evolving mine tech ecosystem by training tomorrow’s digital workforce, Clariden Global would like to warmly welcome you to our 3rd Digital Mines 2023: Building Fully Autonomous Mines From Pit To Port from 19 – 21 April 2023 virtually (via Zoom).

This event – a key industry gathering with many networking & learning opportunities not to be missed!
