What can you expect from the World Mining Congress?


An environment for the presentation of technical papers, new product launches and lectures, as well as talk shows, workshops, and networking.

Authors will present their work either orally or through research posters. Only registered delegates will have access to the Congress and the scientific sessions activities. On the other hand, the entrance for the mining exhibition is free for anyone interested.

The program aims to bring together key players in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from October 18 and 21, in order to make mining more competitive both nationally and internationally. With that in mind, the theme for the 24th edition of the World Mining Congress is going to be "Mining in a world of innovation". The scientific program has been divided into eight themes: Mineral Exploration; Surface Mining; Underground Mining; Mining Economics; Mining Sustainability; Mineral Processing; Automation and Robotics; and Mining Innovation.
