  • As mining companies seek to mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and act to safeguard employees, some have relocated around 15-20% of their on-site workforce by setting up “control towers” to facilitate remote working.  
  • The drivers of technology in the industry have moved to develop more resilient, responsive, and flexible operating models suited to an increasingly uncertain environment. 
  • High level security, transparency and reliability are required across multiple operating regions in order to share business-critical data – but how is this being achieved amidst pan-African challenges?

05/11/2022 10:50 05/11/2022 11:20 The Pandemic Catalyst: Acceleration of the Digital Mine
  • Digitalization technology advances have already resulted in adoption of mechanisation, automation and data-driven production optimisation.
  • Supermajors such as BHP, Anglo American and Rio Tinto have embraced digitalisation to gain a competitive advantage, mitigate risk and improve performance. They use advanced data analytics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence to reduce costs and increase efficiency in their processes, leading to enhanced metals & minerals recovery and less waste.
  • Now, we operate in a pandemic era and digitalization has become even more vital in maintaining operations – but what have we learnt since 2020 and how will this inform the evolution of the digital mine?
