Mining Transformed is the world's first technology exhibition in an underground operating mine. The exhibition will provide a unique hands-on opportunity for exhibitors and visitors to engage underground amongst live demonstrations of emerging technologies that are poised to transform the global mining industry.
Over the course of four days, the builders and buyers of innovation will have the ability to connect and conduct business in an ecosystem like no other in the world.
Over the four-day exhibition and trade show technology companies will be on-site conducting live demonstrations – both underground and on the surface. Thought leaders will deliver talks and participate in panels and round-table discussions on provocative topics challenging status quo thinking in the mining industry.
Emerging technology companies will have access to angel investors and private equity and venture capital firms to discuss potential investment opportunities.
One of NORCAT's aspirational goals is to serve as the global one-stop-shop for all that is the future of mining technology and innovation. To deliver on this priority, NORCAT offers the world's only operating mine designed to enable startups, small and medium enterprises, and international companies to develop, test, and demonstrate emerging technologies that are poised to transform the global mining industry.
As the one-stop-shop for the future of innovation and technology in the mining industry, our "active laboratory" helps to connect and build relationships between global mining companies and the startups/SMEs developing innovative mining technology. The Underground Centre has also become the global standard for world-class, hands-on, experiential mine skills training and development. Our team of tried and true trainers are experienced miners with subject matter expertise across all facets of the mining cycle.
"The NORCAT Underground Centre made testing our product simple, safe and easy. The team has been extremely helpful, knowledgeable and organized, and has supported us with excellent assistance to set up and test the installation of our product. It’s difficult to do a demonstration of our product in an active mine to showcase to prospective customers, and the NORCAT Underground Centre allows that."
"The NORCAT Underground Centre has allowed for meaningful and practical testing and showcasing of our technology in an operating mine environment and in real mining scenarios. The NORCAT Underground Centre is an asset that is unique to the global mining industry - demonstrating products in an operating mine setting is an opportunity few others in the world have!"
