Mining is data-rich! The use of real-time data in underground mining has moved beyond the point of being a ‘nice to have’ and is now a quintessential aspect of any mining operation looking to improve productivity or ensure maximum safety of its workers.
Particularly, mining assets are usually in hard-toaccess areas, which means that manual readings by workers are both time-consuming and dangerous. Leveraging wireless monitoring systems—that can connect a variety of sensors can transmit real-time data—in this regard is helping mining companies transfer the mission-critical information to a server based in a control tower that is up to 9 miles (15 km) away. As a result, it is allowing operators to remotely monitor critical assets. Such technological progression is also generating greater mining productivity. Complement this further is the use of AI that is aiding the data-gathering and decision-making processes. By implementing AI, mining operators are being able to generate and utilise day-to-day data in almost realtime.
Keeping such drastic transitions in mind, many mining tech companies are entering the domain with advanced and integrated offerings. To help organisations navigate through the best-of-breed solution providers, Metals and Mining Review has compiled a list of the top 20 Mining Tech companies in Europe. The list comprises prominent organisations in the industry that address issues pertinent to the mining sector by implementing current trends. Besides, the magazine also includes insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for aspiring CIOs and CXOs.
