Experts Discuss Tailings and Innovative Monitoring Technologies
Huge thanks to Antonio Caires, Henrique Alves, and Sean Hinchberger for contributing to such a dynamic and informative discussion. With over 50 years’ experience between them, we had a lot to learn from their insights related to current trends as well as developing technologies that could make TSFs safer, more secure, and more sustainable going forwards.
How is High Precision 3D Data Improving Mining Workflows?
Huge thanks to Chris Lane and Melissa Newton from Teck Resources, and Andy Jansen from Nevada Gold Mines for sharing their experiences.
How Accurate Do Your Mine Surveys Need To Be?
We had a lively discussion with two experienced mine surveyors during the inaugural launch of the Skycatch monthly series of expert roundtables and thought leadership webinars.
What Does Earth Day Mean for Mining Companies?
The team at Skycatch is just a small percentage of the world’s population who are coming together to celebrate Earth Day today. It is estimated that more than 1 billion people worldwide take part in Earth Day initiatives every year, and we know that every single one of us counts.
3 Types of Highwall Mining Technology Making the Industry Safer
Mining is as much about gathering information as it is gathering metals and minerals. Similarly, as heavy equipment and extraction techniques have evolved over the years, so, too, have information-capturing techniques and technologies. Highwall mining, in particular, has come a long way, and modern mining operations are reaping the benefits with new mining solutions.
Expanding Digital Transformation is Top of Mind for Miners in 2021
As we continue to work with our customers and learn more about their needs in the new year, one theme has come through loud and clear. The number one focus for 2021 is to expand and capitalize on their company and department's digital transformation efforts.
The Evolution of Data Capture and Analysis for Highwall Mining
Highwall mine analysis has come a long way, but progress didn’t happen overnight. For decades, accurately assessing slope stability and other highwall characteristics has been challenging, expensive and dangerous.
How Surveying Is No Longer The Highwall Mining Data Bottleneck
Capturing good, accurate data for highwall mining analysis has been a persistent challenge facing the mining industry, and we think it’s one worth improving.
Mining Industry Convention and Expo Goes Virtual
The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) has hosted an annual, in-person convention focused on current affairs, legislation and new mining technologies affecting the mining industry.
