Message from WMC 2023 Chair

I am pleased to announce that the Call for Abstracts is now open for the 26th World Mining Congress (WMC), which will be held in Brisbane, Australia from 26 – 29 June 2023.

The first time in Australia, the Congress will be hosted by Australia’s national science agency, the CSIRO and supported by government, industry and academia.

Inaugurated in 1958, the World Mining Congress (WMC) is the leading international forum for the global mining and resources sectors.

The WMC 2023 is taking place when the world is changing rapidly in very profound ways, and will focus on Resourcing Tomorrow: Creating Value for Society. It will examine the world’s future economic and social dependence on resources, considering major issues like environmental sustainability, climate change, digital transformation, disruptive technologies, and our future workforce.

Plenary speakers already confirmed include:

  • Mike Henry, Chief Executive Officer and Director, BHP
  • Jakob Stausholm, Chief Executive, Rio Tinto
