Conference Overview

The tenth in the series, the conference will be hosted in Perth, Western Australia, giving attendees the opportunity to visit and experience small to large pit operations in both soft and hard rock. The conference will include a two-day technical program, workshops, technical tours to sites and much more.

The industry has moved from a period of scarcity of resources through a period of oversupply and lack of demand. One constant has been changed. To survive in these tough economic times, there has been a need for adaptive change.

Open Pit 2021 will provide an opportunity for the collective exchange of ideas and recent learnings between industry, suppliers, innovators, marketing, regulators, and all stakeholders to deliver improved outcomes towards ‘Collaborative Advantage’.

We look forward to your participation at the tenth AusIMM Open Pit Operators Conference 2021.
