We all know that technology can play an important part in the success of a company, and sometimes all those buzz words and latest trends cloud our understanding of the technology roadmap.
So, in mining how can some of these technology advances really drive more business value for companies in our industry – whether in exploration, start-up or a well-advanced mining operator or contractor?
Free Mining E-bookTake a look into the types of digital solutions that mining organisations are increasingly adopting in order to achieve cost reductions, increase productivity and accelerate their growth.
Challenges within the Mining and Mining Services Industry
Higher costs as labour, material and fuel are affected by cyclical inflationary trends, plus net new costs for technology and license to operate.
Cyclical hiring and layoffs have caused some skilled workers to leave the industry entirely, placing a premium on workforce availability in an increasingly competitive hiring market.
To quickly scale based on demand, mines are adding leased equipment to their owned fleet presenting demanding asset management challenges across a complex landscape.
ESG (environmental, social & governance) has come to fruition through investors and stakeholders alike demanding a shift in attention from the bottom line of financial statements to the broader and more ethical inclusions of culture, environment, and management of mining organisations.
