1:15 PM At the Intersection of Technology, Innovation and Diversity in Mining

Is Mining Innovation an Oxymoron? It is well known that the mining sector is facing many difficult
challenges: lower grade ores, smaller deposits, increasing costs, tighter margins, faltering capital markets,
political risks, increased social/environmental demands, etc. Canada’s energy industry is no different –
facing many of the same challenges.
Innovation is essential to the current and future survival of our companies, however, the decisions and
actions of upper management often do not often reflect this imperative. This presentation examines some
of the barriers to innovation and what we all can do to move our industries forward. Together, we will
examine recent trends in technology and innovation, both from within and outside the mining industry.
