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. The is week’s Blog is a review of Leading and Managing Change in the Age of Disruption and Artificial Intelligence, written by Dr. Matthew Donald, which covers the issues surrounding future management, leadership, and organizational change for leaders and managers of organizations so that they are better prepared for what’s up on the horizon..
In recent years, the mining sector’s transition towards carbon-neutral power and fleet options has been ramping up, due to both a stronger focus on climate change in global politics and business, and the growth and maturity of the renewables sector. This week’s Blog explores the sustainability efforts of three different miners that could help to determine the future direction of the global mining sector, and examines how close we are to the 100 per cent electric mine site.
Carlson Software is helping to make the inaccessible accessible with its Cavity Auto-Scanning Laser System (C-ALS) Gyro, a valuable tool that provides safe, quick, and reliable mapping capabilities for otherwise unreachable underground cavities. This week’s Blog takes a look at this technology and at how it is currently being used at the Cigar Lake Mine in northern Saskatchewan.
The Mining Capital of the World – A review of Imperial Canada Inc.: Legal Haven of Choice for the World’s Mining Industries
This week’s Blog is a review of the book Canada Inc.: Legal Haven of Choice for the World’s Mining Industries by Alain Deneault and William Sacher, outlining the reasons Canada has become such a mining haven and then examining the impact of this important industry across the globe.
In the efforts of balancing efficiency and cost, buying used equipment after a rental period can offer mine operators more value for their money. This week’s Blog takes a look at the benefits of buying used and at why it might be the best option for your mining company going forward.
An overloaded haul truck puts the safety of a mining site at risk, the safety of employees, and also risks damaging the structural integrity of the haul truck itself. This week’s Blog shows how industrial weighing machines can help ensure that your haul trucks are carrying loads within the permitted weight limits.
