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.
When it comes to pumping slurry, there can be very few applications that are more challenging than the hydro-transport of heavy duty slurries in oil sands production. Earlier this year, GIW Industries Inc. commissioned its largest ever heavy duty centrifugal slurry pump for operation in Canada’s oil sands; this week’s Blog takes a look at this remarkable piece of technology and examines it applicability to your operations.
The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated that digital transformation is not strictly about technology: it’s also about putting people first and fostering interaction, intimacy, and caring within your team. This week’s Blog discusses how to best prepare your people so that your mining operation is ready to adapt and future-proof itself for a digitally-enhanced future.
Take Control of Your Data and Focus on the People: Two Essential Components to Building a Successful Analytics-Driven Framework
Today’s ever-improving technology has transformed the potential for collecting and using data in all areas of mining. This week’s Blog examines the steps mining companies can follow to build a new data analytics-driven framework and provides the key to success for how managers communicate and implement these new systems.
Cavity Scanning, or “C-ALS Survey”, is something that has been conducted for decades under Carlson’s product line. Today, however, this innovation is capturing the attention of many new potential users of the data. This week’s Blog takes a look at the technology behind cavity scanning and discusses which applications might be best for you.
