Circularity in mining and metals industry in spotlight

The inaugural Mining, Metals and the Circular Economy conference is scheduled to take place at the ICC Sydney on 29-30 October 2024, co-located with the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC).

Organiser Beacon Events is touting the event as the world’s first and only event to explore the global context of process and product circularity throughout the mining industry’s value chain. 

Beacon Events Event Director Sherene Asnasyous says the strategic development of Mining, Metals and the Circular Economy is about helping mining companies, as well as other industry stakeholders better comprehend their roles within the circular value supply stream.

“As a powerful tool to reduce waste and pollution, circularity needs to be a priority for mining producers and their supply chains. It is also crucial for meeting the growing demand for minerals needed for new technologies, construction, and other industries, as it extends the lifespan of metals beyond their initial use,” she says.

Asnasyous adds that the forum aims to explore ways to reduce waste at all stages of a mine site’s lifecycle and capitalise on the economic benefits of extracting valuable materials from waste and metals recycling.

The conference program features international and local experts from various mining companies, consultancy firms, industry associations, and academia. 

In addition to the conference, there will also be a supplier showcase allowing delegates to source the latest products and services that can help them transition to circular business models.
