Who will change the future of mining?

#DisruptMining accelerates mining innovation by bringing diverse, brilliant minds together to provide the raw materials that propel modern society.

Founded in 2017 by Goldcorp and Integra Gold, #DisruptMining is a catalyst to accelerate innovation – to encourage new ideas, generate new opportunities and tackle problems more efficiently, and to bridge the gap between mining and technology. It’s a platform for entrepreneurs working with disruptive and exponential technologies to highlight their application across the entire sector. From exploration and mine closure to financing and sustainability, #DisruptMining engages people with exponential technologies and rogue ideas, and provides a CAD$1 million capital opportunity to bring their disruption to mining.

Finalists will pitch competing innovations to a “shark-tank” style panel of industry titans. More than 1,000 mining executives, investors and financiers will be in attendance, each looking for that one revolutionary idea. #DisruptMining is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to produce real and powerful change.

Proceeds from the #DisruptMining event will support the future of the mining industry through innovation-focused scholarships.
