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.
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.
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 Digital Innovation in Mining is Changing the Face of the Industry
Techniques have come a long way since the Romans first began digging for tin using iron chisels and hammers—now we have all sorts of machinery to make the excavation and extraction of minerals safer and more accurate.
Some Findings on Surface Mining And Environmental Sustainability
Climate change is a “hot topic” in the 21st century … literally. Rising temperatures and sea levels, melting ice caps, and the loss of species are things many of us are concerned about.
