#Longwall2022, a first and many more to come

What an event the Hunter Valley Longwall Mining Conference 2022 has been. It’s ended too quickly. Waterline exhibited with our key team players Tim, Kylie, Chris & Evelyn whom some of you would’ve had the chance to chat with.

And we absolutely loved it, as you can see from some of the photos during the event. We especially enjoyed the informative and networking sessions scheduled over the two days and can’t wait to do it all again.

Longwall, safety, inclusion & technology

In my previous blog, I mentioned my background in the industry—its extensive, especially in Longwall Mining. The LMC being based around my area of expertise had me excited and exceeded expectations. It was great to see the traction and support we received from several delegates who attended and interacted with us at our stand. It was the 3D-printed roof supports and the shearer though, wasn’t it? We had some winners too! Check them out below.

Great to see the engagement derived from the event. We had some great key learnings from the presentations, the networking opportunities and overall, a 10/10 for the event. This year’s discussions focused on technology advancements that enable automation to improve safety & efficiencies, and ensuring the adoption of inclusivity when recruiting. All of which are topics of importance in our mining industry.
