    A look back at the Future of Deep Mining Conference 2019


    We attended the Future of Deep Mining Conference in 2019 for the first time and we realized that the presenters at this conference were closely aligned with the direction our company is headed.  Highly recommended for those companies that are looking to create what mining will look like in the future.
