An underground gold mine complex in British Columbia from the 1940s probably isn’t where you’d expect to find cutting-edge technology. This week’s Blog looks at how older mines that weren’t profitable to excavate decades ago could, for the first time, be mapped and be revived using Exyn’s technology.
Cyber security was a growing threat for miners long before the pandemic, and the middle of a crisis is the last place you want to learn you have a cyber security problem. In the spirit of Cyber Security Awareness Month, this week’s Blog points out what you need to know to look for and how to prepare for this new wave of threats, and how preparation is your first line of defence.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been extremely hard on many industries, and mining is no exception. This week’s Blog goes through some of the top things to keep in mind as you define your communications approach throughout the coming weeks and months.
How we find, build, operate and reclaim mines in Canada is being rapidly transformed by innovative technologies and the achievement of transformational change requires a new vision for mining that is ambitious enough to drive a change in performance and operational goals. This week’s Blog takes a look at a recent report from the Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR) that addresses this very issue; The Changing Nature of Work: Innovation, Automation and Canada’s Mining Workforce.
Visibility into data means sustainable mining doesn’t have to be an either/or situation. This week’s Blog looks at how mining companies can reduce their energy and water consumption and improve on sustainability to help lead the mining industry into the next era, while also increasing production, ensuring product quality, and generating a profit.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage, citizens have had to adjust every facet of their lives; from how they work, to how they raise their children, to how they live. This, as well as a rise in issues demanding societal evolution, has created a turbulent time for Canada’s mining industry. This week’s Blog will take a look at some of the changes going on around us, and then discuss strategies to help navigate the ‘new normal’ – a buzz phrase that is the defining term of 2020 and beyond.
Once again, the Quebec Mineral Exploration Association (QMEA) will be bringing its members together for Xplor, its annual convention. But thanks to COVID-19, this year things will be looking differently. This week’s Blog takes a look at what participants can expect form Xplor as it is held virtually, October 19, 21, and 23, 2020.
COVID-19 has uncovered new issues and challenges, so everyone is looking to technology companies to help, as technology is now seen as a revenue generator and cost controller. This week’s Blog examines how such things as analytics and data systems, IoT, artificial intelligence, and robotics can improve the elements of mining operations, particularly in the age of a pandemic.
The mining and quarrying industry brings together some of the most destructive forces affecting modern day machinery and equipment. This week’s Blog explores Belzona’s line of rapid-curing elastomeric solutions to the many treats posed by the mining environment, from abrasion, corrosion, wear, impact, and chemical attacks.
Almost every mine today makes use of some kind of operations control centre that makes it possible to remotely monitor, measure, and control mining operations. And – without an appropriately designed control room – safe high-speed mechanized mining would neither be practical nor commercially viable. This week’s Blog provides a glance into some best practice in control room construction, equipping, and processes.
