MineDigital (Kazakhstan)

MineDigital competition of mining digitalisation technologies, equipment and projects is organised as part of the Mining Goes Digital Conference (Kazakhstan). The objective of the competition is a practical assessment of innovative solutions and technologies for the digital transformation of mining enterprises in Kazakhstan and Central Asia. The Competition helps IT and Technology companies, start-ups and IT divisions of Mining and Metallurgical enterprises to promote the ideas and working prototypes of digital and robotisation technologies.


Finding the best possible technological solution for a mine planning, construction, modernisation or closure is a complex task and often involves creative approach and analysis of alternative offers. Striving to achieve greater efficiency in knowledge exchange and engagement between the local mining companies and international vendors the MINEX Forum is organising MineTech competition of mining challenges and solutions.

The competition is designed around a win-win formula: the mining companies will get a wide spectrum of turnkey solutions from local and international providers. The vendors will have a chance to demonstrate the application of their products and technologies for resolving specific cases.

MineInvest (Russia)

Every start-up project, be it the development of a new deposit or implementation of innovative idea entails high risks. According to the statistics, a very small number of start-up projects succeeds at building a successful business model and becoming a profitable enterprise. The two most common causes of failure are obvious: lack of buyers or funds. Most start-ups have limited access to experts, financiers or investors. Many have little or no skills in preparing marketing presentation.

The objective of the competition is to provide a platform for independent evaluation of early stage and developing mining projects and to discuss opportunities for their accelerated implementation with the assistance from investors and financial backers.
