This week’s Blog examines whether or not a digital transformation from pit to port can support a small mine; or if an affordable solution is as precious as gems themselves?
Attracting investment and exploration in Canada – Can governments and mining companies use data-driven open innovation initiatives to increase interest in highly prospective regions?
Over the past ten to twenty years, we have seen a steady decline in discovery rates, despite continued and substantial expenditure in exploration and deposits are becoming harder and harder to find. This week’s Blog discusses how can we better understand the environments in which we’re working to target more effectively, as well as how we can improve discovery rates?
The transportation needs of a mining company can change at a moment’s notice and that’s why mining companies need a truck rental partner who can quickly swap vehicles in and out from site to site.

This week’s Blog takes a deeper dive into Carlson’s innovation and at how it can potentially resolve some of the mystery of what may lie below.
The mining industry is global and diverse, with no two sites having the exact same equipment, workflow, workforce, or access to technology. Yet the recent expectations within this industry for companies to digitize their orebody seem to dismissively boil down to embrace industry 4.0 to be more efficient and mine smarter. This week’s Blog looks at some of the other ways mining can capitalize on industry’s varied abilities and foundational needs to be able to adopt modern tech.
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 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.
