The International Conference on Advanced Technology in Exploration and Exploitation of Minerals will provide a forum to focus on technological solutions for effective and safe exploration and mining in the current production driven resource environment. These technologies cover a wide spectrum of mining activities, from exploration, mine planning and scheduling to mine operations, management and control. The conference would be addressed by leading experts of mining technology, consultants, researchers, managers, equipments suppliers, software professionals, explorers from Australia, USA, Sweden, Canada, Germany and India. The Conference will provide a common platform for industry and academia to meet and discuss solutions for achieving safe and profitable mining in the production oriented market. The main objective of this Conference is to address the measures, mechanisms and policies that are indispensable to exploit minerals more efficiently in future. The specific aim is to see how India can utilize advanced technology to thrive and stay ahead and also identify technology areas where advances can improve energy efficiencies, increase productivity and reduce wastes from mining activities.
The conference will cover many topics under four themes, which are as follows:
Mineral Exploration: Exploration Technologies, Satellite, airborne geophysical and geochemical analysis, Data acquisition and modeling, and Exploration and mining.
Mine Development: Feasibility studies, Risk assessment, Mine planning, Project and construction management, and Plant installation, construction and commissioning.
Mine Technology: Mine software, Remote and tele-remote control system, Extraction technologies, Environment studies, and Mine operation and management.
Mining Activities: Mine infrastructure, Overburden stripping, Mining equipment and vehicles, Influence of international initiatives, Environment Improvements/remediation, Infrastructure development for mine, and Mine safety initiatives, issues and challenges.
