MINERÍA la mejor puerta de acceso al sector minero MINERÍA / ENERO 2022 / EDICIÓN 532 43 Creating Value for Society Resourcing Tomorrow WMC2023.ORG 28 January 2022 Dear Instituto de Ingenieros de Minas del Perú I would like to invite you to participate in the exciting and dynamic 26th World Mining Congress which is coming to Brisbane 25-29 June 2023. The Call for Abstracts is now open. WMC 2023 has adopted the theme of “Resourcing Tomorrow: Creating value for Society” and are embedding elements of the UN Sustainable Development Goals within the program. Important issues on the agenda include sustainability, diversity, technology, innovation, and automation. The WMC 2023 will feature cutting edge content from globally renowned industry and thought leaders, giving you the latest information with depth, breadth and scale. Your expert contribution through the submission of abstracts will be vital in ensuring a world-class program for our global mining community. Relevance to You There are twelve specific streams forming the WMC 2023 program. Of particular interest to your sector is the stream Mining Science & Engineering, of which I am the International Co-Chair. This stream will highlight novel mine design solutions and engineering value enhancements in current and proposed mines. It will also feature developments to transform mining methodologies and operational practices with rapidly changing trends towards automation, waste minimisation, low-carbon operating environments, and mining of increasingly complex orebodies. Specifically, topics to be covered will include: • Rock fragmentation optimisation • Rock mechanics/ground control • Mine planning and scheduling • Deep, large scale underground mining • Cave mining technologies and practices • Pit slope stability and control • Mine ventilation design • Reserve estimation (overlap with Geoscience and Discovery) Read more I know that you place great importance on people and the planet and your contribution would enhance the expansive canvas being painted by the Program Committee. There are no limitations as to where good ideas may originate and we need to share our collective knowledge and be open to fresh ideas to advance our industry. I urge you to encourage your colleagues and networks to submit an abstract before 1 March 2022. Yours sincerely Jose Marun International Co-Chair - Mining Science & Engineering WMC 2023 Congress Program Committee
