Global Mining at the Threshold of Incorporating IT and Communications

Dubai, India (PressExposure) October 18, 2012 -- Most of the world's biggest mining companies, and many smaller mining companies, are listed on the London Stock Exchange. London is the world's biggest centre for investment in the minerals industry: British high street and investment banks (like Barclays, HSBC, RBS, Citibank and Standard Chartered), pension funds, hedge funds and insurance companies invest hundreds of millions of pounds a year in scores of dubious mining projects across the globe, connecting working people's earnings in Britain with the fate of mining-affected communities around the world.

The two day summit will include talks, case studies and panel discussions on everything related to the mining industry. Strini Mudaly, VP and Group Head-IT from Gold Fields Ltd - South Africa will throw light upon the escalating need of cloud computing systems while Baldomero Gutierrez, Chief Information Officer from Fresnillo Plc - Mexico will be presenting a case study on communication systems for underground mines. Debatable subjects like 'The benefits of social media to the mining industry' will be taken up at the panel discussions.

Kal Ruberg, Chief Information Officer from Teck Resources - Canada, Gustavo Brancante, Manager Innovation Technology from Alcoa - Brazil, Dr. Sean Dessureault from University of Arizona - USA and Jorge Garcia from Newmont Mining Corporation - Peru, are amongst the international speakers who will be present at the summit. Local speakers include Dave Liddle, Global Technology Manager from Anglo American - UK, Mike Popham, Chief Operation Officer from Center for Strategic Cyberspace Security Science - UK and Mark Butcher, GIS Specialist from MICROMINE - UK. Dean Stetson, Information Technology Systems Lead at Rio Tinto (USA), Heather Drews, IT Manager from Cliffs Natural Resources - USA and Philppe Cavrot, Deputy Chief Information from Eramet - France are amongst the eminent persons who will be a part of the advisory panel.

Mike Popham who is the Chief Operating Officer at Center for Strategic Cyberspace Security Science - UK, specializes in government frameworks enforceable at the international and national level to enable management of policy, practice and technical cyber security measures. He promotes that such frameworks will do much to engender trust and confidence between developed and developing nations in the interest of fostering trade, cooperation and peace. James Ross, Head of IT and Corporate Facilities from DeBeers - Canada, is of the opinion that providing an exceptional customer experience can be a fundamental building block for all tackling obstacles and hindrances in all kinds of working environment.

GE Industrial Communications who is the global leader for rugged communication networks designed for harsh environments is the platinum sponsor for the summit, Micromine, Ventyx, Storm Procurement and British Telecommunications plc are amongst the other sponsors and partners supporting this summit.
