The Gold Industry Group and Deloitte will be hosting an Innovation in Mining event at
Diggers & Dealers on Tuesday 2 August, 2016.

Focusing on the role of innovation in the Australian mining sector, we will discuss how companies are leveraging innovation in pursuit of even greater productivity gains. Our innovation panel of Gold Industry Group members and senior industry representatives will debate whether the mining industry is future proofing its collective prospects through innovation. The panel includes:

  • David Cormack – National Mining Leader, Deloitte Consulting
  • Richard Weston – Vice Chairman, Gold Industry Group and Executive Vice President, Gold Fields Australia
  • Allan Kelly - Managing Director, Doray Minerals Limited and Founding Member, Gold Industry Group

Are mining companies integrating their innovation strategies throughout their organisations? How is innovation creating greater business value? How does Australia compare to Canada and Africa?

Deloitte’s Innovation in Mining: Australia 2016 report will be launched at the event and is the final of a three-part global series including Canada and Africa. The report will be based on the Australia Innovation in Mining study conducted by Monitor Deloitte, AMEC and Diggers & Dealers, to better understand how mining companies are innovating in order to strengthen and enhance their efforts.

The Gold Industry Group will also provide an update on its stakeholder engagement plans and the winners of the 2016 Deloitte High Growth Awards will be announced.

As global shapers of innovation in mining, we look forward to connecting with industry and sharing our insights on what is powering innovation in Australia.
