A world first study Zero Emission Copper Mine of the Future lays out how Australian copper mining can be greener, cleaner & smarter using emerging technologies. The Zero Emission Copper Mine of the Future by University of Sydney’s Warren Centre for Advanced Engineering sets out how Australian copper mining can become emission free over the next 30 years through the use of emerging technologies. The world first roadmap commissioned by the International Copper Association Australia-ICAA-identifies five key target areas for technological innovation to reduce and ultimately eliminate mining emissions: exploration, movement of materials, ventilation, processing, and water use.

The range of technologies is vast. It includes autonomous drones & robot machinery, next generation sensors, Mixed Reality, wearable tech, in-situ ore recovery, novel leaching processes and on demand ventilation to name a few.

Achieving cutting edge innovation and high tech disruption will also depend on collaboration across five strategic levers: policy & programs, industry networks, capital enablers, future knowledge and an open mindset.
