Water is the lifeblood of our planet, and a resource essential to minerals processing which must be used conservatively. Mine operators must be conscious of their water use, as well as innovative in how they re-use and handle water. This week’s Blog takes a look at the efforts of Weir Minerals and the strategies and services it provides in optimising the entire dewatering component of a site.
Who’s watching when you aren’t? AI-powered machine vision – enhancing remote monitoring and real-time pipeline leak detection in metals mining
An undetected pipeline leak has the potential to endanger workers, damage local ecosystems beyond rehabilitation, contaminate drinking water supply, and leave community livelihoods in ruins, as well as cost mining companies millions of dollars in damages. This week’s Blog takes a look at Canadian software company, IntelliView Technologies, whose innovation takes video and image analysis to new heights through the coalescence of leak analyzing video analytic artificial intelligence with dual sensor techniques.
Does Barrick Gold’s move to B.C. sound the death knell for Canadian director residency requirements?
It is no secret in Canadian legal circles that our provincial, territorial, and federal governments compete to have companies adopt their corporate law, where to the jurisdiction with the most lenient residency requirements often go the spoils… or the corporate headquarters. Barrick Gold Corp. recently brought this issue to the forefront when it moved from Ontario to the west coast in order to take advantage of B.C.’s attractive business climate. Thus week’s Blog takes a look at Barrick’s move and asks the question, does it signal the end for Canadian director residency requirements?
In industrial occupations such as mining, there are heavily monitored controls to lessen the risk of occupational disease such as lung disease, lead poisoning, or skin disease; just to name a few. However, these hazards are not the only factors that affect the health and productivity of your workforce. This week’s Blog takes a look at some of the more common workplace injuries and the steps you can take to prevent and mitigate the risks.
Underground mines have challenging environmental conditions, including toxic gases from drill & blast operations or gases given off by the surrounding strata rock. Protecting miners from acute or chronic gas related health conditions is paramount for any responsible mining company. This week’s Blog takes a look at Ontario-based Maestro Digital Mine, a manufacturer measurement and control instrumentation, and their ventilation solutions that reduce downtime and enable miners to return to the face faster… and safer.
Pure Gold Mining recently released the results of a Feasibility Study on the Madsen Red Lake Gold Deposit that projects a long-life, high-margin mine with low initial capital requirements and a fast timeline to production. This week’s Blog takes a closer look that the results of that study and gives you a glimpse into the future of Ontario’s next gold mine.
Extracting raw materials is necessary for our economy and our way of life, but it’s also necessary for mines to place themselves on a de-carbonization pathway that achieves standards and emissions targets. This week’s Blog takes a look at what steps the Canadian mining industry needs to take to keep up with this rapidly changing world, and how the adoption of clean energy can help.
Canadian Mining’s Future Depends on Millennials and Diversity: The Industry Can Only Succeed If We All Work Together
Millennials will soon become the largest percentage of the mining industry’s workforce, and they will be sure to shake up the status quo. This week’s Blog takes a look at this growing workforce demographic and what industry can do to attract – and then retain – it in order to lessen the impact of worker shortages.
Dr. Farrell Cahill, PhD, explores the etiology and management of acute and chronic health conditions to improve occupational and non-occupational performance. With 17 years of research experience, he has published 26 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals and over 50 abstracts at national and international conferences. Within the occupational health and safety industry, Dr. Cahill and his colleagues specialize in the development of defendable Physical Employment Standards (PES) and Bona Fide Occupational Requirements (BFORs). Dr. Cahill was the first to develop a BFOR for the offshore oil and gas industry. He holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Kinesiology with a PhD in Medicine.
