MINExpo International 2008
The world’s richest deposit of mining technology, products, and services.
by Kerry L. Clines, Senior Editor
You’ll find everything in Las Vegas at the MINExpo, sponsored by the National Mining Association. The Las Vegas Convention Center is the venue; Sept. 22, 23, and 24 are the dates. The only thing missing is you. So mark your calendars and make your reservations now.
You’ll find the newest products, technology, and services, as well as a large gathering of mining professionals from around the world. More than 1,200 exhibitors will be displaying the latest technology, equipment, parts, and services used for exploration, extraction, safety, environmental remediation, and preparation. This year’s show is expected to be the largest ever held, with more than 593,000 square feet of exhibit space and some 30,000 visitors from around the world.
Exhibitors will be on hand to answer questions about their products – everything from large equipment to hand tools, the latest in automation and robotics, safety and communications equipment, engines and parts, materials handling and processing equipment and services, pollution-control equipment, reclamation equipment and services, consulting and financial services, and much more.
The conference program will feature 20 educational sessions that address the most timely and pressing issues affecting the mining industry in the United States and around the world. Many of the industry’s top professionals will lead discussions and share information that will help keep you abreast of changes and new developments. Your attendance will earn professional development credits.
The educational sessions will cover topics that include underground mining, surface mining, safety, processing, bulk materials handling, environment issues, exploration, new mine development, and more. A complete list of sessions with dates and times can be found on the MINExpo Web site, www.minexpo.com.
Safety awards luncheon
A special luncheon on Wednesday, Sept. 24, will honor the 2007 recipients of the Department of Labor’s Sentinels of Safety Awards. These awards are presented each year by the National Mining Association and the Mine Safety and Health Administration to mining operations that have demonstrated an exemplary safety record. Winners are those mines that have worked the most employee hours without experiencing a lost-time injury. The competition requires a minimum of at least 4,000 injury-free hours.
MINExpo only happens once every four years, so don’t miss your opportunity to attend this year. To get more information about the show, or to register for the event, go to the MINExpo Web site, www.minexpo.com.
