this special issue aims to encourage researchers to address recent advances in smart mining technology for the mineral industry. original research contributions and reviews providing examples of the improvements brought about by smart mining technology in all areas of the mineral sector can be included in this si.Of course, harnessing technology also means training employees and hiring new staff with advanced skillsets to fill a variety of new roles. data scientists are needed to develop sophisticated analytics models to identify improvement levers. If a mining company is using an agile development approach, other skills and roles are needed.jan 01, 2013 advances in mining technology. even though this chapter deals with coal extraction, it should be pointed out that all types of mining, particularly surface mining, share many characteristics, regardless of the mineral being extracted. generally, for a new mining venture, the shovel capacity and truck size are coordinated, so that a shovel In fact, steel and mining company arcelormittal forecasts a percent increase to automakers global demand for steel by 2020. however, which global mining companies win that business is up for debate. tapping into new technology is key to streamlining operations, reducing expenditure, and enabling companies to keep their prices competitive
the current point in the mining sawtooth cycle presents tremendous opportunities for innovation. the time is now for the mining industry to embrace technology and business model innovation. collaboration with world-class leaders, especially those from outside the mining ecosystem, will help companies drive rapid and effective change.may 01, 2019 mines today are more complex. As older mines reach the end of their lifecycle, new mines require companies to go deeper underground for less quality ore. although technology ultimately increases the bottom line, its an investment with considerable cost. safety issues. until 2001, mining was the most dangerous occupation in the world.the advances of technology & methods of future mining continued advances in mining technology have the potential to reduce the extraction period of a mine nearly in half. mine given a year lifespan, with the adaption to new mining technologies, could see coal is one of the cheapest and most reliable sources of energy, and as demand soars new technology will be crucial. with global demand for coal widely expected to rise over the next years, Dr gareth evans finds out how a range of new technologies will help the coal mining industry meet that need from both existing and less conventional sources.
