NORCAT announces Mining Transformed
NORCAT, the Sudbury-based one-stop shop for mining innovation, said Monday it will host Mining Transformed, the world’s first technology exhibition in an underground operating mine.
Mining Transformed takes place in September 2022 at the NORCAT Underground Centre. It will provide a unique hands-on opportunity for exhibitors and visitors to engage underground amongst live demonstrations of emerging technologies that are poised to transform the global mining industry. Over the course of four days, NORCAT’s goal is to enable the builders and buyers of innovation to connect and conduct business in an ecosystem like no other in the world.
“NORCAT is thrilled to host the world’s very first technology exhibition in an underground operating mine,” CEO Don Duval said in a release. “Our investments in the underground centre have proudly created a unique mine that enables companies from around the world to develop, test and demonstrate emerging technologies, creating a vibrant active laboratory to see and touch the future of the industry. We’ll be excited to welcome partners, tech exhibitors, mining executives and visitors from around the world.”
Over the course of the event, participants will have an opportunity to engage in a variety of activities. Technology companies will be on-site conducting underground and surface demonstrations.
Thought leaders will deliver talks, and participate in panels and round-table discussions on provocative topics challenging status quo thinking in the mining industry.
In addition, angel investors and private equity and venture capital firms will be available to meet with emerging tech companies to discuss potential investment opportunities.
