Why is IQPC’s GIS in Mining & Exploration Event Taking Place?
The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a powerful tool and is gathering momentum in the mining industry. Of particular interest is the GIS capability to integrate communications across departments and mine sites. GIS technology must constantly evolve to meet the changing needs of the mining industry, both in Exploration and mining terms. The question remains, is the mining industry ready for these changes? Are you ready for what this technology has to offer?

What can you Gain by Attending this GIS in Mining & Exploration 2008?
In today’s complex and competitive environment, GIS offers multiple applications in the mining industry with tools to gather, compile, process, display, analyse, and archive extensive volumes of data. A well designed, implemented, and supported GIS management structure is critical in the success of your mining operation.
Therefore, at IQPC’s GIS in Mining & Exploration event you will have the opportunity to hear successful examples of mine sites that have implemented the GIS system and utilised GIS to receive maximum value. You will also get to hear about the future of the industry and the role GIS will play in the future of the mining industry, both in terms of exploration and mining
Australia’s leading Mine GIS experts will gather together in Brisbane to discuss matters of mutual importance; about where the GIS is headed in the mining industry and what strategies both mine sites and exploration companies are using to follow its direction.
This is an event for the explorer, the geologist, who wants to gain further knowledge into the technical aspects, solutions and technologies of the mining geospatial world. Furthermore, this is a gathering of not just managers, but minds, who strive for change and forward-thinking in today’s Australia.
What Extra Features should You Look Out For at GIS in Mining & Exploration 2008?
Our exclusive Gold Package will enable you to increase your knowledge and minimise the risk of failure when implementing and developing your GIS system during exploration and mining and insure you fine tune tasks including:
