About this Event

Project background details

Across various industry sectors it is anticipated over the next 10-15 years automation will displace many jobs, but at the same time many others will be created. Jobs of the future will require different skillsets and potentially different education requirements to install, operate and maintain the new automated technologies.

The mining industry is accelerating the implementation of autonomous mining equipment into its operations and there remains some anxiety around what impact this will have on current and future roles. Learn more here.

Calling on experts!

GMG is recruiting volunteers willing and able to contribute time and expertise to helping develop a guideline that will benefit the global mining industry. Over the coming months the guideline will be drafted through contribution and collaboration of peers around the globe. The project is kicking off with virtual workshops in the coming weeks to:
