as part of the MINEX Russia Forum

Address: Radisson Slavyanskaya Hotel and Business Centre, 2 Europe Square, Moscow, 121059, Russia

Industry transformation

Mining industry plays a key role in global production. The core sectors of the economy depend on minerals extraction, including energy, agriculture and food industries, construction, transport, mechanical engineering, communications, etc.

We are currently experiencing an era of tectonic changes, multiply accelerated by the coronavirus pandemic. The world financial and economic system, last reorganised in the middle of the 20th century, is unable to effectively address the challenges facing humanity. Its restructuring or, possibly, full re-set is coming.

The development of technologies “Industry 4.0” before our eyes is making a revolution, changing the role and place of man in industrial production. The real threat of irreversible climate change requires an urgent reduction in environmental pollution.

The solution to all these problems is impossible without mineral raw materials and metals. Taking into account the tendency of reduction in proven reserves and decrease of ore quality, a fundamental transformation of the mining industry at all levels is necessary for sustainable provision of metals and minerals for industries.

The mining industry today is complex, multifaceted, and interconnected. When developing new forms of business organisation and making changes, it is important to avoid costly mistakes.

Only by combining the intellectual resources of specialists from all strata of the professional society, it is possible to assess the risks and make competent decisions.

About the conference

The goal of the conference is to discuss the ongoing transformations which are shaping safer, smarter, more sustainable and efficient mining and metals industry.
