On the path towards Intelligent Mining

Welcome to CASPEO DAYS 2024! We are thrilled to invite members of the international mineral processing and metallurgy communities to our conference, “On the Path Towards Intelligent Mining,” where we will explore the pivotal role of data reconciliation, ensuring a unified and accurate dataset that forms the bedrock of decision-making.

In the mining industry, confronting bad data is a persistent challenge that can hinder progress towards Intelligent Mining. Inaccuracies in measurements and sampling, inconsistent data sources, errors in data collection, undermine the industry’s ability to optimize operations. Together with reliable measurement and sampling practices, the integration of data reconciliation, process simulation, and metallurgical accounting emerges as a powerful trio to overcome these challenges and participate to quality assessment.

Data reconciliation ensures a harmonized and accurate dataset by identifying and rectifying discrepancies in various data sources. Process simulation allows mining companies to create virtual models, enabling them to test different scenarios and optimize operations. Metallurgical accounting adds another layer of precision by meticulously tracking and reporting the flow of materials from mine-to-market. This holistic approach lays the foundation for Intelligent Mining, where the quality of data drive better decision-making, sustainability and operational efficiency.

In addition to two-day conference discussions and insights, we are excited to announce that this event will also serve as a momentous celebration – marking 20 years of CASPEO’s journey in the mining industry. Join us for a friendly “French type” cocktail reception, where we’ll reflect on two decades of accomplishments, milestones, and the collective efforts that have shaped our success. We look forward to combining the spirit of celebration with the forward-looking discussions on building your data framework for the Intelligent Mining.

A journey in the heart of the Loire Valley

Welcome to Orléans, the city of Joan of Arc that seamlessly weaves together history, modernity, and French charm.

Situated between the Loire castles and Paris, Orléans is an hour from Paris. Nestled on the banks of the Loire River, the city is a tapestry of medieval architecture, cobblestone streets, and a vibrant cultural scene. Imagine discussing groundbreaking scientific discoveries against the backdrop of centuries-old cathedrals and charming cafes – a juxtaposition that adds a unique and inspiring dimension to your congress experience.

Beyond the conference rooms, Orléans offers a sensory delight – from delectable French cuisine to the enchanting aroma of blooming gardens. Picture yourself meandering through the Old Town’s historical lanes or sipping fine wines by the river – Orléans beckons you to indulge in its cultural and gastronomic treasures.

Following the course of the river, discover the Loire Châteaux: Renaissance homes, medieval fortresses, architectural heritage listed by UNESCO. Kings, artists, and authors all had the right idea. Seduced by the Loire, a great many of them decided to settle along the banks of this river. Each of these monuments has some great stories to tell.
