Preparing our mines and mining organizations to seize productivity gains: this vision of autonomy will be gradually implemented over the next 10 years…
This axis focuses on developing decision-making models and predictive tools, tailored to mining companies’ needs, to optimize equipment maintenance based on both financial and technological parameters.
This axis focuses on integrating mines’ decision-making processes to perfectly coordinate every part of the business process. Typically, different mine departments try to optimize their performance without a “big-picture” vision of the mine’s activities. As a result, autonomous mines face a specific challenge: integrating decisions.
This axis aims to use geometallurgy, from exploration to restoration, to enhance data and improve profitability via an innovative, integrated system-wide approach.
The knowledge and information extracted from mineralogical data throughout a mine’s life cycle will improve the economic and environmental viability of the mining industry as sustainable development becomes a growing priority.
This axis focuses on developing adaptive, scalable management models for underground and open-pit mining plans, which will allow technologies to be used to their full potential in both current and future mines. The concept of autonomous mines only works if field activities are automated as well.
