Special thanks to our event sponsor,

Join us at our next
Annual Conference & Innovation Showcase!

What People Are Saying 

When we joined MICA as the first member, we decided to go FULL membership, betting on the promise that CEMI was bringing to the table, even though, at the time, there were no other companies involved. This leap of faith proved to be accurate; not only have we recovered 100 times what we invested, but we are members of a vibrant community of highly innovative, positive, and energetic companies and people who are transforming mining into an engine of change for sustainability and the development of humanity on earth and in space. Participating in each congress is highly enriching in terms of seeing the work of other members, hearing leading miners present their needs, and expanding our concepts of what is possible and our networks! As ABCDust, we are proud to be the No1 member and strongly recommend MICA´s work, which will undoubtedly give a return of 1 to 1000 in the medium term to us and society at large!

MICA’s Annual Conference & Innovation Showcase is where we will bring together great innovators with the companies that are looking for their solutions.

Come and hear directly from industry leaders as they discuss topics such as roadmaps and approaches to innovation, skills and jobs of the future, women in mining, a case for cleantech in mining and so much more!

Why the Conference is Important?

The mining industry faces a number of challenges now and in the near future.

Demand for many mining commodities is expected to rapidly grow in several areas, due to a variety of factors.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and climate change mitigation efforts will dramatically increase the need for materials used in electric vehicles, renewable energy development and in many other areas.

At the same time, environmental regulations and public expectations will require mining companies to be greener and more efficient across their entire production process.

Workplace safety requirements and the need for greater efficiency will increase the need for automation.

This will be further accelerated by shortages of skilled workers in many areas. The industry demands innovative solutions, which is our mission at MICA.

As a world leader in mining technology development, Canada is well positioned to further grow its position as the world mining technology leader.

Research in universities and other research institutions is identifying potential new opportunities.

However, real innovation – turning research results into commercially viable products – requires the right mix of expertise, shared interest and financing to move from a good idea to commercial reality.

Bringing the right players together under the right conditions to create the innovative products the mining industry needs is the role of MICA.
