RPMGlobal is proud to be a Diamond Sponsor of CTMF 2019 and will be leading two main panels:
Monday April 29th – 4:20 PM | Why Some Mining Projects Succeed and Some Fail – Shearman Room
Developing a mine is difficult at the best of times and is becoming more difficult as projects get more complex, lower grade and are in more remote locations. Besides properly defining technical issues such as resources, ground conditions, and metallurgy, capital and operating cost estimation and project execution has become challenging reflecting local and jurisdictional and non-technical issues. This panel will highlight common threads in successful and unsuccessful projects and speak to other issues to be addressed in other panels including resource estimation, water, power and societal issues and assessing risks and opportunities that contribute to project success.

Tuesday April 30th – 1:30 PM | Transforming Mines with Integrated Digital Operational Platforms – Conference Room G/H
The Digital Mine: Amplifying Decision Making Capability: In today’s mining landscape no topic is talked about more than digital transformation. The term digital transformation can mean many things to many people and really what does “being digital” actually mean? In today’s mining operations what value does digital transformation deliver? In this panel speakers will look at key pillars that make up any digital transformation, the challenges it introduces and through the use of real world case studies will explore what value being digital actually brings to the industry.
