Exploración minera en 2022: las principales tendencias a seguir
La industria minera ha pasado por tiempos complicados en los últimos años debido a las fluctuaciones en los precios de materias primas, cadenas de suministro extendidas, los impactos de COVID-19 y operaciones remotas, y la creciente presión en torno a las exigencias de regulaciones ambientales, sociales y de gobernanza (ESG).
Trends Impacting Mining: What to Expect in 2022 and Beyond
The mining industry has been through its fair share of upheaval over the past few years due to fluctuations in commodity prices, extended supply chains, COVID-19 impacts and remote operations and increasing pressure around environmental, social, and governance (ESG) impacts.
Mitigating Mining’s Environmental Impact With Technology
Traditionally, tailings dam monitoring has been a tedious, manual process with mixed results. Mine operators bore holes along the dam surrounding the tailings storage facility (TSF), then periodically visited those spots to take measurements.
How Deployment of High Accuracy Drones Makes Surface Mining Safer
Drones are no longer "a nice to have" option at an open-pit mining site. They have become a necessity to explore and survey land, assist with drill and blast planning, measure stockpiles and capture data from vast highwall mining sites.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Extracting Useable Minerals from Mining Waste in Tailings Dams
In order to reach the mineral resources, miners must first remove layers of topsoil and waste rock from the ground, and when extraction is more or less complete, you are left with a liquid slurry called ‘tailings’ that must also be disposed.
