KEYNOTE SPEAKER – Meaningful Consultation

Speaker: Lawrence Aimoe, CEO of Upshimuskwa Consultants Inc.

What is it to be meaningful?

  • First person to ask is your better half…
  • Have you ever tried to give your partner a present without wrapping it first?
  • Have you ever shopped for your kids at the airport just prior to boarding?
  • Have you ever forgotten to phone your Mom on a special occasion?

Well, if you answered yes to any of these, you understand where I am going with this discussion…

In 2005, the tiny First Nation of Mikisew Cree took Canada to court in relation to the need to consult…you need to understand this Supreme Court of Canada decision and others in order to avoid “your” day in court…

Maximizing Cone Crusher Performance

Speaker: Seth Wheeler, Territory Sales Manager, Western Canada and U.S. Mountain West, Superior Industries.

Every producer wants peak crushing performance, but not every producer knows how to achieve it. Getting there may require just a few tweaks – or even a total rebuild. To remain at peak levels requires proactive maintenance practices, combined with expert consultation and continuing education. When operations truly maximize cone crusher performance, the perpetual paybacks include lower cost per ton, greater plant uptime, increased production capacities of highly saleable material and reduced maintenance and wear costs.

Lifecycle of a Screen, Managed: Get The Most Out of Your Machine

Speaker: Alex Caruana, National Manager for Canadian Aggregates, Polydeck

Screening material is a crucial part of most aggregate operations. A properly run screen can run so well that it is forgotten amongst other priorities, while a troublesome screen can be so taxing on an operation and seriously hurt its bottom line. This presentation aims to help the Aggregate Operators think of screening as a relatively predictable part of their operation and help stay ahead of any problem units in their screening circuit.
