South Australia’s Copper to the World

20 May 2018

Copper experts from U.S. Chile, Britain and Australia join leading miners and innovators in Adelaide on 26 June for the Copper to the World conference.

The South Australian Government has developed the Copper to the World program to deliver a global perspective on the future of copper, while covering trends, opportunities and developments across the copper value chain to address rising demand.

According to Australian Mining magazine "ongoing demand for the red metal means miners will need to produce as much copper in the next 25 years as has been mined in humankind’s history to meet growth in global industrial production and higher investment in energy infrastructure with emerging economies driving much of the growth.”

It goes on to say “Australian producers are working to supply a great big chunk of the emerging copper inventory gap, as they incorporate the latest technologies to drive success and productivity.

BHP (who is presenting at the Conference) is forging ahead with its investment plans to expand the worlds’ third largest copper deposit at Olympic Dam in the north of South Australia.

OZ Minerals (also presenting at the Conference) has extended the life of its Prominent Hill copper mine. In April, primary approvals for its almost $1 billion Carrapateena copper gold project have been secured from the South Australian and Commonwealth Governments, clearing the way for Phase 2 of construction to commence for processing and above ground infrastructure.

Newcrest Mining, with Australian copper operations at Cadia Valley, NSW and Telfer, WA has also joined the program to share its insights into incorporating technological approaches to its operations.

Copper miners Havilah and Hillgrove will share presentations on copper mineralistion styles in a company segment at the conference.”

The International Copper Association is also well represented. Director of Technology Development and Transfer based in Washington, D.C, Hal Stillman, is speaking on global technology trends in a broader session introduced by John Fennell, CEO ICA Australia.
