Perumin 35 Mining Convention is a space that promotes dialogue on the multiple challenges of the mining industry in the world, shows its progress and the innovative approaches that are being developed at a global scale. It seeks to share different experiences and best practices in a variety of areas: environmental, social, regulatory, exploration and operations, among others.
In this edition of Perumin, the “International Meeting” is back to share global trends in innovation and sustainability as two major pillars of development. The meeting will take place during the afternoons of Tuesday September 27 and Wednesday September 28 at Sala Nilo Rios Quinteros and will include international and national speakers and panelists of highly recognized experience and expertise.
The first day is focused on innovation as a tool that underpins the momentum of change in the world and in the mining industry. Innovation has been a constant feature of mining production activity and today, more than ever before, it encompasses more aspects of the mining activity, inviting us to reimagine the way we do things in order to improve production, safety and impact indicators and, in general, people's lives.
On the afternoon of the first day, presentations will be held on Mining 4.0 experiences, automation and digitization, in which we will hear about improvements in exploration processes or extending the life of mine, carbon reduction, productivity, safety and sustainability. At the close of the day, we will discuss some approaches to innovation in medium and small mining, and there will be a panel on the value chain in artisanal mining.
The second day will address the issue of sustainability, a pillar of mining progress and development in the world, and at the same time it is the element that makes it a transforming partner in the development of a territory. On this day, we will discuss the generation of wellbeing, the chain of economic dynamics and environmental responsibility, the development awareness of the area in which we work, the relevance of joint work and alliances.

The first panel will comment on the way the mining industry currently works, pointing out local experiences, alternatives and challenges. Likewise, an analysis will be made from the point of view of governance and the challenge of growth and regulation, as it is important to have a balanced regulatory policy that supports economic and social development. Therefore, we will have two keynote presentations on the subject. The day will close by addressing diversity as a challenge, but at the same time as a driver for growth.
I would not like to finish this introduction of the International Meeting without thanking a group of outstanding professionals from five countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, Sweden, and the United Kingdom for their support in the preparation of this program. They are experts in the trends in each of these countries.
We look forward to seeing you at the International Meeting!
