Can we/should we mine with plants? In space?

How can we build infrastructure sustainably in the Global South?

Find the answers to these any many other questions, with over 3,000 of the world’s mining leaders, technologists, and researchers from 58 countries who are meeting at the World Mining Congress in Brisbane from 26 to 29 June 2023.
