MINING

Home > Industries > Mining Sector

Miners embrace
INDUSTRY 4.0

All over the world, mining companies are under pressure to increase productivity and performance to manage costs, while keeping their workforces safe and reducing the environmental impact of their operations.

When you embark on a Digital Transformation journey with BCX, you can use technology to assess sites and build better plants, reduce operational costs through increased efficiencies, and optimise procurement expenditure. This industry is leading the way by transforming core operations by adopting Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in their plants and throughout the supply chain. You can follow in the footsteps of mining giants such as Rio Tinto, which are investing heavily in automation, sensor-tech, modelling software, and offsite data processing centres to pilot the “Mine of the Future”.

Challenges or OPPORTUNITIES?

We know about your challenges: from illegal mining operations, unrest and rising labour costs, to fluctuating commodity prices, and energy and water concerns. At BCX, we believe the miners that embrace technology, encourage innovation, and explore sustainable shared outcomes for their workforces and communities will reap the benefits in the long-term. Legislation such as the Mining Charter may have shifted your focus, but it’s the perfect time to start thinking about how to create the workplace of the future.

There are new technologies that can be adapted for the mining industry or are even being specifically developed for mines. For example, introducing mobile devices and “wearables” that allow constant communication between workers can improve productivity and prevent accidents. Leveraging Analytics to predict maintenance requirements can cut down maintenance costs and downtime. Safety can be improved with microseismic monitoring and by using autonomous vehicles, which also ultimately can increase productivity.
