Creating a reliable communication network, establishing an integrated architecture and using data to determine where improvements can be made improving productivity, efficiency and safety

Join us in Johannesburg on the 2nd – 3 December 2014 at the Crowne Plaza in Rosebank, Johannesburg

After another successful event in 2013, Mining IQ is pleased to bring you the 4th edition of the Mine Site Automation & Communication Africa taking place in Rosebank, Johannesburg on 2 – 4 December 2014.

The last 12 months have seen great shifts occur to the mining industry in Africa. The economic climate coupled with a drop in commodity prices has meant that all operations have had to review their current operations to determine where costs can be cut, production improved and efficiencies gained. Mining automation is seen by leading companies as the future of the industry. For companies who have implemented automation improvements in production levels, increased precision and levels of safety have been noticed. Can you afford to be behind your competitors?

This leading African mining automation and communication event will help you understand the limitations of automation and communications systems, as well as showcase which technologies would best suite your signature mine site. Learning from those who are already in the process of implementing and integrating automation technologies will help you decide which methods, strategies and technologies are going to give you the best return on investment.
