Join us for the Austmine Live Webinar on Optimizing Mining Operations

This post originally appeared on the Austmine website. Dassault Systèmes is a member of Austmine, a mining association in Australia which aims to develop and champion the mining equipment, technology and services sector.

Mining companies are facing unprecedented challenges in the contemporary industry environment, with increasing cost pressures intensified by diminishing ore grades, greater mineral depth and more remote operations. Coupled with this is the responsibility for miners to undertake sustainable practices and collaborate with local communities to ensure a social license to operate.

Due to these challenges, it has never been more imperative for miners to derive the greatest value from their assets by achieving required cost reductions and improved productivity output. But optimizing mining operations is easier said than done. Strong leadership is needed to instill an organizational culture that continually strives for excellence and requires investment in technology, human capital and new business methods.

Paul Fenner, Senior Manager, Technical Sales at Dassault Systèmes, will be one of three industry experts presenting during this webinar. Paul will explore the central role that mining technology plays in delivering productivity improvements for the mining sector.
