We believe that mining companies should look to sectors such as manufacturing for leading practices to improve productivity, the greatest operational risk in the mining sector. We recognize that several factors (including ore body knowledge, ore quality and weather) impact variability for miners, but believe this variability can be managed by adopting an integrated process model approach, aligning digital investments to productivity outcomes and embedding a zero-loss culture.

Join our panel of mining professionals from EY and The University of Queensland for an interactive discussion, including:

  • How can mining learn from manufacturing?
  • How can aligning to a market-to-mine process model improve business integration?
  • How can digital enable new ways to drive productivity in the sector?
  • What are the people aspects that need to be considered?
