Over the years, industries around the globe have placed a fundamental importance on worker safety and sustainability, and technology provides a powerful asset to assist companies in achieving these goals. This week’s Blog takes a look at how the mining industry has begun to benefit from the positive impacts that various technologies are able to provide.
Last month, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 to be a Public Health Emergency of International Concern following the wave of global travel restrictions and citywide lockdowns in certain areas of China because of the virus’ contagious – and potentially deadly – nature.

And when a mine is trying to maximize investment benefit, while also dealing with the inherent volatility and risk of the industry, any expenditure must make sense to their operations. This week’s blog takes a look at an affordable Cloud ERP solution brought to you by Illumiti, a leading An SAP implementation leader with a strong history of working with mining industry companies.
A recent Canadian International Student Mine Rescue Competition hosted by the University of British Columbia has helped to provide critical training and camaraderie for the next generation of mining engineers. This week’s Blog takes a look at the competition – the first ever in Canada – and at its partnership with medical and safety technology manufacturer, Dräger Safety Canada.
Canadian mineral explorers and mine developers rely almost exclusively on investors to fund the work they do. Projects might have amazing geology and have perfect location, but none of that matters if the management team is unable to raise money to support exploration activities year after year. This week’s Blog takes a look at how industry is able to best engage and communicate with investors through the many tools at its disposal.
A circuit breaker located in a mine – where the power center is engineered to transform and distribute electrical power brought underground – is vastly different that the one you might find in your basement at home. This week’s Blog takes a look at six different circuit breaker applications used in mining to make sure these devices are operated in the right manner.
There’s no shortage of dangers lurking in mines: from poisonous gases and toxic fumes to fires and explosions, one mistake can cause serious injury or even death. Thankfully, injuries and fatalities in mining are rare in Canada these days due to rigorous safety standards and advanced equipment. This week’s Blog takes a closer look at this equipment and at how mining companies are keeping their workforce safe, both above and below the surface.
Recent research predicts that the mining automation market will be worth $3.29 billion by 2023 — a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7 per cent since 2017. Yet, while automation greatly enhances productivity, it also places additional demands on steel components. In this week’s Blog, we examine why wear resistant steels are becoming increasingly vital to modern, enhanced production, as well as the best way to select them.
Decarbonization, or the reduction, removal or offsetting of CO2 emissions, has become a strategic priority for mining majors with most on track to meet their 2020 targets and starting to look at the 2050 horizon. This week’s Blog explores the issues surrounding decarbonization, as well as the myriad of other clean energy, power efficiency, and electrification projects around the world that seek to meet the Paris Agreement’s mandate of keeping global warming below 2° Celsius by 2100 .
We live in an ever-changing world and in a global age of disruption, the impact of future organizational change will be unavoidable.
