  1. 1. Vale Mission 2012Belo HorizonteBrazil Australian Technology: Inspiring Global Mining Innovation Robert Trzebski CEO – Austmine Ltd
  2. 2. Challenges of future miningUnprecedented demand driven by the needs of emerging economies Mature ore bodies and fewer tier one surface deposits being discoveredInevitable migration from surface to underground operations Lower grades with longer haul distances combined with massive volume demandNext generation ore bodies bringing inherently complex mineralisation . Stakeholders demanding less environmental impact from our operationsCarbon constrained future framed by the context of Global warming Structurally higher energy prices and possibly real energy constraintsFuture being different from the past in some fundamental, unavoidable ways.
  3. 3. Australia’s mining industry• Mining industry currently represent for approx. 8% of GDP• Minerals exports account for $138 billion – more than 50% of Australia’s exports• Annual investments over $50 billion – $4 billion in R&D• Directly employs some 200,000 Australians (2% of total national employment)• Total government revenue payments (taxes and royalties) of US$4 billion• Global supplier – 2nd largest minerals sector by value of production (after USA)• Commodity exports will reach $480 bilion in 2030 from a base of $210 billion in 2010.

  6. 6. Australia’s mining technology sector• Exports of technology, equipment and services represent 3.3% of total goods and services exports• Directly employs some 500,000 Australians globally - over 5% of total national employment• Global supplier – 2nd largest exporter of mining products and services (after USA)• Leader in mining innovation in terms of funding of R & D - estimated $4 billion per year
  7. 7.  The demand for resources continues to expand in China, India, Russia, the FSU, Brazil and smaller emerging economies This is driving the demand for Mining Technologies like never before, particularly in the areas of exploration, mine development tools, automation and communication, and advanced mineral processing ALL economic predications continue to emphasise the probability of an ongoing Supercycle in the demand for resources
  8. 8. We believe the coming years will see the highest ever demandfor resources and therefore technologies to find, mine andprocess these commodities and convey them to market safelywith the highest level of productivity.
  9. 9. Out of Crisis the Emergence of the “Technology Age of Mining” “Boom Age of Mining” 2004 to 2007 “Financial system repair 2009” • High commodity prices • Massive government stimulus • Easy access to capital 2009 • Growth returns ’03 to ‘07 • High Labour costs/low availability • Emerging nations power ahead • More volume = more equipment • Confidence returns • Exploit known deposits, marginal new ground. • “Shell shock” hangover Historical High Global Mining +2010 Activity Index “Technology Age of Mining” ’07 to ‘08 • Unprecedented volume challenge “Global financial melt down ’07 to ‘09” • Combat declining gradesPost crash Low • Banker driven risk taking stalls system • Productivity focus/low cost • Distorted balance sheets uncovered • Autonomy & Smart Systems • Housing market distortions spread panic • Safety via technology • Monopoly money mentality grinds to a halt • Less people = more technology Time (Year)
  10. 10. The Outlook for mining technologies…• The Mining Technologies & Services (MTS) sector has had an excellent period of growth since the Global Financial Crisis• Exports of Australian MTS have accelerated and we believe that the total value of exports is in excess of $15 billion• Development of mining opportunities continues to grow across the globe, but particularly in the previously ignored geographies in more remote locations
