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.
Excel will always have its place, but Azure platforms are now taking mining into industry 4.0. This week’s Blog takes a look at how DataCloud is partnering with Microsoft in delivering real-time information so that mining partners can better understand how their operations can be optimized to their specific geology.
Silicon Valley to Vancouver; Why Canadian mining companies are collaborating with cloud architecture tech companies in Silicon Valley
Vancouver is home to some of the largest mining companies in the world and the need for digital mining solutions is leading these companies towards Silicon Valley in search of cloud computing and analytics technologies to optimize production and – ultimately – expand margins. This week’s Blog takes a look at this new age of mining data collection and what is being done with all that information.
The Internet of Things and cloud technology are making the mining industry safer, more efficient and more financially viable. In this new blog post author Peter Wilcox explains how.
Blasting is a core activity in mining and impacts downstream operational activities such as excavation and processing. Software technology used in blasting has been prevelant for many years (the use of blast designers is common) but it has not been readily accessible to an average blaster. Integrated tools for blast data collection and blast performance analysis are largely missing from the industry.
