Mining Industry Exhibition

CHANGE THE FUTURE OF MINING!

#DisruptMining: Accelerating the pace of mining innovation

The mining industry today is collaborating and investing in technology and innovation like never before. Our sights are set on the future of the industry, with #DisruptMining accelerating innovation in mining.

Now in it’s third year, #DisruptMining aims to encourage new ideas, spawn new technologies, and generate new opportunities to tackle the mining industry’s most vexing challenges.

The #DisruptMining challenge offers entrepreneurs a platform to bring disruptive and exponential technologies to the sector, whether it’s unlocking exploration opportunities; finding operational and production efficiencies; reducing the environmental footprint and delivering on sustainability commitments; or developing alternative ways to finance mines and capital projects. #DisruptMining incentivizes people with exponential technologies and rogue ideas, with a CAD$1 million capital opportunity to bring their disruption to mining.

Finalists will pitch their competing innovations to a “shark-tank”- style panel of cross-industry titans at a live finale event held in March 2019 during the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada’s (PDAC) annual convention. More than 500 mining executives, investors and financiers will be in attendance, each looking for that one revolutionary idea that will get them to the future of mining, faster.

Proceeds from the #DisruptMining event will support the future of the mining industry through innovation-focused scholarships.
