THE WAY FORWARD FOR MINING IN AUSTRALIA

INDUSTRY heavyweights are set to examine current mining and engineering trends, and provide rare commentary on what lies ahead for the coal mining industry, at the 2016 Queensland Mining and Engineering (QME) Exhibition.

QME, to be held at the Mackay Showground, is set to bring nationwide industry innovators together from July 26-28, featuring more than 200 companies that will showcase the latest mining and engineering technical solutions available on the market. 

QME's exhibition director Robby Clark says the event is set to bring a range of Australia's best innovators under one roof to discuss and share the way forward for mining in Australia.

"Incorporating thought leadership with current mining and engineering trends, QME 2016 is going to be an event that offers attendees opportunities to discuss the way forward in mining," says Clark.

This year's exhibition will host networking events, seminars, live demonstrations, as well as an exhibitor list that boasts some of Australia's best mining and engineering innovators.

The three-day event gives all industry contributors an opportunity to come together to witness the latest products and technologies available on the market, while being kept abreast of industry trends.

The event included the 'Thought Leadership Panel Discussion,' which for the first time in the history of QME, includes a panel of industry heavyweights who will examine the domestic and international outlook on coal and will provide commentary on what lies ahead for the coal mining industry.

The speakers include Mick Buffier - chair of the World Coal Association, Charles Meintjes - president (Australia) of Peabody Energy and Andrew Barger - director of economic and infrastructure policy of the Queensland Resources Council.
