On the 7 th of May, sixty-five of Australia's most influential mining executives will convene at the five-star Rendezvous Hotel in Perth for two and a half days of vibrant workshops, peer led panel discussions and working lunches at GDS International's upcoming NG Mining Australia summit.
Having previously run several successful NG Mining Summits in Australia, this year's event also promises to be extremely valuable, with attendees discussing their way through such key topics as automation, operating licenses (CSR), safety, training and up-skilling, to name but a few.
Attending NG Mining Australia this year will be: Denise Goldsworthy, Chief Commercial Officer for AHT Rio Tinto; John Chow, Mine Manager for AngloGold Ashanti; David Jenkins, VP Safety & Security for BHP Billiton; Keith Satie, Manager of Health, Safety, Emergency & Security for Fortescue Metals Group; Andrew Thomson, COO for Mount Gibson Iron; and Jim Viero, Mine Manager for Newlands Mine for Xstrata Coal.Gina Perrin, NG Mining Australia Summit Director for GDS International, the global events company behind the summit said: "This year's Next Generation Mining Australia Summit will provide the ideal closed-door environment for the leaders of Australia's biggest industry to collaborate, discuss, debate, investigate legislative issues and really make a difference in such a lucrative and important industry. No other event in the Australian mining industry brings together so many powerful decision makers under one roof, and I think that this year's summit is well positioned to surpass last year's summit."
