The Ai, Data and Technology in Mining Masterclass will take you from the application of Ai and automation in exploration, through to mine planning, processing, logistics and HR. The Masterclass provides you with a safe place to touch, feel and experiment with the application of Ai and Machine learning to your discipline. We will help you understand and unlock new capabilities that will be required for career success and performance in the rapidly evolving future of mining.


The masterclass is designed to demystify Ai and Data Science by building a fundamental awareness of the terminology and methodologies relevant to the mining sector. Importantly, the Masterclass focuses on the application of Ai and data science with practical case studies and examples across the mining value chain – from exploration to shipping.


You will;

  • Develop a fundamental understanding about Ai and data science within the context of mining;
  • Gain a practical understanding on the opportunities to apply Ai and data science across the mining value chain;
  • Learn from successful and challenging applications via case examples across commodities and companies;
  • Identify a specific pilot opportunity to run a small-scale trial to unlock productivity and performance;
  • Experience first-hand how Ai, data science and technology is reshaping mining’s technical disciplines and the required capabilities in exploration to logistics.
  • Develop a plan for further learning and capability development in the application of emerging technology and the future of mining

“I developed the know how to confidently and successfully apply Ai to drive the next level of performance in our processing plant. We’re on track to deliver a 1% increase in recovery. No CAPX required.”

“There is a lot of talk about Ai on sector level with various examples provided at conferences and in the media. This masterclass guides you through a practical and consolidated application of Ai across the mining value chain. We draw from both those developing Ai and those applying Ai with real experience – the good, bad and ugly."

“Data science is no longer the domain of the boffins. It’s fundamentally changing the way we find, extract, process and sell minerals."
