Tucson Hosts Haulage & Loading 2021

Join us for the three most productive days in open-pit mining

Held every two years, Haulage & Loading is the conference for surface mining professionals. The event, which brings mine operators and suppliers together in an informal Arizona resort setting, focuses on improving surface mining operations in general and truck-shovel loading in particular. The technical program offers continuing education for mining engineers and mine managers and the exhibit allows suppliers to interact with customers.

In 2019, nearly 150 mining professionals attended the event, including personnel from Agnico Eagle Mines, Asarco, Barrick Gold, Cleveland Cliffs, Colowyo Coal, Detour Gold, Freeport-McMoRan, Hudbay Resources, Kinross Gold, Peabody Energy, Syncrude Canada, Suncor Energy, Teck Resources and Usibelli Coal.

The venue, the Hilton El Conquistador Resort in Tucson, Arizona, is an affordable resort with room rates starting at $175 per night during the March high season. More importantly, the resort is clean and health conscience. Its Covid-19 policy is available at the bottom of the accommodations tab. The ballroom and outdoor settings offer ample space for the proper social distancing of a group this size.

Haulage & Loading is produced by Mining Media International (MMI), the company that publishes Engineering & Mining Journal (E&MJ) and Coal Age. Working in cooperation with Dr. Tim Joseph, professor emeritus, University of Alberta, and principal for JPI, MMI organizes a top-notch technical program. A popular past speaker, Tim offers delegates practical ideas they can immediately implement at the mine to improve operations.

The exhibit and the sponsorship packages for Haulage & Loading 2021 have been designed to suit both large and small suppliers.

The conference is the central focus of the floor plan, which offers an inclusive format.
