The mining industry’s first large scale dedicated conference on In-Pit Crushing and Conveying is only three months away now. The program of 24 speakers is largely complete, with a broad mix of mining groups, consultants and OEMs scheduled to talk in-depth on a range of issues from truck / shovel versus IPCC to relocation of IPCC systems and conveyor systems for waste handling. The presence of a diverse range of stakeholders will make for the most comprehensive debate on this technology to date.
