Share post:

Thousands of mining and exploration professionals from around the world are expected to join a global technology summit, hosted by international mining software developer MICROMINE, on 17 November 2020.

More than 25 speakers will feature in the three-hour online mega-event which will be available in separate languages and timezones for audiences in Australia/Asia, Europe/Africa, North & South America, Russia & Central Asia.

2020 Unpacked will showcase the next generation of mining and exploration software as MICROMINE unveils the latest versions of its integrated suite – Micromine 2021, Pitram 5 and Geobank 2021.

Micromine CEO Andrew Birch recently commented “rapidly changing markets, evolving geopolitical dynamics and the Covid-19 pandemic had created unprecedented challenges for mining companies, driving a thirst for evidence-based innovation”.  

“Technology is evolving at warp speed, and the pressure is on us to ensure our users have quick access to the best tools available,” said Birch.

Launching the latest products comes after an in-depth Beta testing program, that saw almost 150 testers globally trial the new software.  

“Attendees will see the new features our teams have been working on over the past six months and share the digital transformation experience with exploration and mining clients from around the world who are partnering with MICROMINE to improve efficiency and profitability.

“Access to new and innovative data modelling and analytics is essential in helping the industry advance the safety and efficiency of its processes, reduce costs, and meet increasing social and environmental standards.” Said Birch

Delegates will be treated to a free 1 month license of the latest release of the award winning modelling software, Micromine 2021, which is currently used on 2,000 sites in more than 90 countries around the world. 

Technical product managers will run interactive group demonstrations, while additional feature workshops and one-on-one sessions (by appointment) will be available for MICROMINE clients after the event.
