Previous Event: Canadian Mining Industry in 21st Century: Challenges and Opportunities 

Held on Wed, Sep 2nd 2015 at 6:30 pm, Sheraton Hotel - 600 Hwy 7 E, Richmond Hill, ON L4B 1B2


Canada is a world-leader in the minerals and metals industry. Thanks to its rich geology, Canada ranks in the top five countries in the global production of aluminum, uranium, potash, cobalt, nickel, diamonds, and platinum group metals. In 2012, the mining industry contributed over $52 billion to Canada’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In addition, approximately 400,000 people are working in the mining industry across Canada. Besides its direct contribution to the economy, the industry supplies feedstock to many other industries such as machinery, manufacturing and transportation. Our province, Ontario, is the leading province in Canada in mineral production. More than 22% of Canadian nonfuel minerals are produced in Ontario. The industry is Ontario’s economic engine and a major employer.

In the last two decades, mining industry has experienced significant changes by adopting advanced technologies and introducing more automation into mining operations. These changes has allowed a relatively higher productivity and a better visibility into certain parts of mining value chain. Despite these improvements, the mining industry is still facing many challenges which effective addressing of them will require development of interdisciplinary approaches that allow maximizing the economic return of mining projects under evolving and uncertain market conditions of today. 

This presentation will focus on the current state of the Canadian mining industry. The mining methods being used in Canada are introduced and the major challenges and emerging concerns within the mining industry are discussed. Recent advances in technology that have created opportunities to develop innovative and cost-effective solutions for mining projects are also presented.
