The push towards digitization in the mining sector is increasingly becoming more immediate – and digitization is the key. This week’s Blog explores how digitization has transformed the industry and takes a glimpse into the future of automation.
Amid the surge of successful major capital projects in Canada in recent years, there have been some recurring challenges in getting projects off the ground. In this week’s Blog, we explore some challenges—and potential trends offering solutions—that those in the infrastructure space will want to consider to help avoid any hurdles in their own projects.
A digitally-connected mine can improve jobsite safety and create a leaner, more efficient operation. But the enormity of the mining industry has led to a slower, and often fragmented, digital transformation. This week’s Blog takes a look at the digital divide and discusses the importance of bridging it.
An underground gold mine complex in British Columbia from the 1940s probably isn’t where you’d expect to find cutting-edge technology. This week’s Blog looks at how older mines that weren’t profitable to excavate decades ago could, for the first time, be mapped and be revived using Exyn’s technology.
How we find, build, operate and reclaim mines in Canada is being rapidly transformed by innovative technologies and the achievement of transformational change requires a new vision for mining that is ambitious enough to drive a change in performance and operational goals. This week’s Blog takes a look at a recent report from the Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR) that addresses this very issue; The Changing Nature of Work: Innovation, Automation and Canada’s Mining Workforce.
Carlson Software’s Cavity Auto-Scanning Laser System (C-ALS) Gyro is helping to ensure that the inaccessible becomes accessible by providing reliable mapping capabilities for otherwise unreachable underground cavities. 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 how the mining industry has begun to benefit from the positive impacts that various technologies are able to provide.
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.
As mining companies increasingly look to new technologies to improve their productivity, they are starting to think differently about how they approach such bleeding edge issues as digitization and automation. This week’s Blog takes a look at how the development of new technologies and related software are becoming increasingly crucial in optimising overall efficiency and vital in containing costs on mines.
