About the
XXXI International Mineral Processing Congress

Connecting research and industry to understand and solve the future challenges facing mineral processing, IMPC 2022 is expected to welcome more than 1000 professionals and academics from the mining industry, representing more than 40 countries, including leading universities specialising in mineral processing, major mining companies and global industry providers.

The event is focused on Partnering for Impact, bridging the gap between industry and research to explore the highest standard of mineral processing ideas and innovations poised to deliver value for people, planet and profit.

From ideas to implementation

Exploring market challenges with field-tested innovations and ideas poised to deliver value.

Explore Australia

Visit Melbourne and enjoy pristine sandy beaches, snow-capped mountains, spectacular zoos and aquariums, world-class wineries hidden down beautiful country roads or drive along the breathtaking coastline.

Advancing mineral processing

Sharing new ideas for adapting to changing conditions to allow the industry to continue operating responsibly into the future.

A proud history

Since the first event in London in September 1952, there have 29 IMPC events in 17 different countries, attracting global audiences committed to advancing the future of the industry. With COVID-19 forcing cancellation of the proposed 2020 event in South Africa, IMPC 2022 is expected to be bigger than ever, brimming with game-changing innovation.

Innovation: the future of responsible mining

The mineral processing industry faces a period of change and growth: balancing evolving automation and digitisation technologies and extraction techniques for addressing grade reductions and ore variability; against stringent operating environments, zero emission targets and the growing challenge of maintaining social license in an increasingly complex landscape.

But with change comes opportunity

Join us as we connect industry with research to explore the next generation of ideas and innovations for addressing the future challenges of mineral processing.
