Underground tech exhibition returns in Sudbury this May

Second Mining Transformed show will be hosted at NORCAT’s underground mine
The NORCAT Underground Centre in Onaping includes an underground mine where companies can test their products and demonstrate their capabilities to prospective clients.

NORCAT is gearing up for the second iteration of Mining Transformed, an underground technology exhibition slated to take place this May 28-29 in Sudbury.

First held in 2022, the unique event is dubbed as “the world’s only tech exhibition in an underground operating mine,” as it takes place at NORCAT’s test mine in Onaping, about a 30-minute drive north of the city.

The event gives innovators an opportunity to demonstrate emerging technologies that are aimed at improving safety, productivity and efficiency in the mining industry.

It’s designed to bring together mining tech creators with industry executives and representatives in a kind of matchmaking event where they can see product demonstrations, ask questions about the technologies, and conduct business.

During the inaugural showcase, 46 exhibitors participated, many of them from Northern Ontario.

This year’s event is being timed to coincide with the third annual BEV In Depth: Mines to Mobility conference, also taking place May 29-30, at Cambrian College.

Hosted by the City of Greater Sudbury and other partners, the two-day event focuses on the battery electric vehicle supply chain and how Sudbury and Northern Ontario can play a key role in strengthening it.

Registration for that event is open now.
