Real-time understanding of your operation enables you to make decisions that impact the outcome now, when it will have the greatest impact. Actions taken at the face have a multiplier effect on downstream operations – maximising payload from the face minimises lost opportunities in the form of spare and/or idle capacity elsewhere. Real-time understanding of your payload is the cornerstone to an optimised operation – Monitor, Manage, Optimise.
Universities have been conceptualising Ventilation-on-Demand (VoD) for over a decade. While a number of mines have evolved and implemented similar systems, few actually reach the working face, and even fewer can check all of the boxes of a true Ventilation on Demand system.
As tailings dams are built to last forever – mine waste needs to be stored permanently – preventing catastrophic failure requires a comprehensive monitoring program. There is a vast range of technology available to help mining companies ensure their tailings facilities are secure – and, in the event of an issue – that they receive ample advanced warning to allow for corrective action.
In mining, there are constantly new innovations and technologies coming to market, many of which can enable staff to take charge of their own contributions, productivity, and most importantly, safety. Here are some specific technologies that will EMPOWER your team to do their job safely and successfully.
In mining, knowledge is power… no question about it. The more you know about your fleet, your assets, your personnel, and your processes, the more empowered you will be to maximise overall operational success.
