Finding the best possible technological solution for a mine planning, construction, modernisation or closure is a complex task and often involves creative approach and analysis of alternative offers. Striving to achieve greater efficiency in knowledge exchange and engagement between the local mining companies and international vendors the MINEX Forum Secretariat is organising MineTech competition of mining challenges and solutions.

The competition is designed around a win-win formula:

Participating in the competition a mining company can achieve a number of objectives. The obvious one is to potentially resolve a technical challenge and broaden the receive a wide spectrum of turnkey solutions from local and international providers. The company may also use the competition to stimulate internal innovation.The vendors will have a chance to demonstrate the application of their products and technologies for resolving specific cases.The forum delegates will participate in lively discussions and learn about new technologies and solutions.

After the competition the mining companies will be able to create a super challenge and invite the winners to implement the proposed solutions.

Participation options:

Challenger –  a mining company of organisation offering up a case or technological challenge

Contender – a person who takes up MineTech challenge and proposes to present solution at the competition
