16:00 – 17:40 / 7 July 2022   Queen Geraldine

Next generation mining technologies

The mining and metals industry is recovering from one of its most difficult periods in decades. Market volatility and a downturn in commodity prices have created a new normal where cost cuts, automation and operational efficiency are vitally important. Some emerging technologies are set to completely transform the way mining professionals will operate over the next 10 years. Whether we are talking about improving productivity, saving money or boosting safety in order to better protect the workers. The mine of the future will be less visible, more compact, use less water and energy and have a limited impact on the environment. Future hubs will become more productive and extract minerals more efficiently thanks to a mass application of new innovations. Some of the technologies driving this transformation include blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI) and big data, where resource-intensive processes are being replaced by autonomous operations.
