web date claimer CRC ORE Annual Assembly 2016

Wednesday, 30 November 2016 (Curtin University, Perth)

Key players including Mining industry leaders, METS Participants and Researchers, together with stakeholders from the broader mining industry flocked to Curtin University’s Bentley Campus in Perth on 30 November for CRC ORE’s Annual Assembly 2016.

Aptly themed "unlocking and fast-tracking new value for the minerals sector", the day’s packed agenda focused on how CRC ORE and its Participants are working to develop and deploy innovative world-class technology. This focussed on effecting a step change in value across the whole-of-mine system, which is one of the underlying principles of CRC ORE’s second funding term.

Wrap-up and actions

CRC ORE set the scene early with how new technology and solutions will be nurtured and expedited through CRC ORE’s new Innovation Pathway. Attendees enjoyed an upbeat talk on transformative business models and radical efficiency from thought-leader, Peter Bryant. A talk on fast failure and fast reward in the world of start-ups also captured the audience’s imagination.

The day’s agenda then set about showcasing major initiatives from within mining operations, METS businesses and research projects. A line up of mining industry leaders took to the podium to illustrate the cutting edge research, implementation strategies and step change technologies that, if successful, will transform the mining sector. A recurring theme across the presentations was the need to maintain a dogged focus on the integration of point solutions into dynamic, more profitable whole-of-mine scenarios.

Presentations from the 2016 Annual Assembly have been published on the password-accessible members area of the CRC ORE website.
