Breakthrough Mining – Innovating from the Orebody Out with Jon Treen and David Richardson, Stantec

Jon Treen, Senior VP, mining and Dave Richardson, Manager, Engineering – Innovation Leader of Stantec will discuss the identification, evaluation, and application of innovative mine planning and mine design techniques that have the potential to drive non-linear growth in production, while minimizing the total cost of ownership through reduced excavation sizes, utility requirements, and time consuming re-handling of material. We will be focusing on opportunities to unlock alternative mine designs by applying new technology in unconventional ways, leaving the old paradigm of chasing incremental and linear gains behind.
