Given the global push toward electrification, mining operations play an ever-larger role in this push. Meeting the supply challenges requires greater efficiency and reliability.
A new interactive guide, Extract More from Your Mining Operations, describes strategies miners currently use to overcome the challenges of optimizing mining processes and production, improving safety, and caring for the environment and surrounding communities.
Mining 4.0, the digital transformation of mining operations, includes ways to streamline operations, reduce waste, and use predictive operational analytics to reduce unplanned downtime and extend the useful life of heavy machinery. The guide includes:
This digital transformation journey is based on:
…a practical approach, one that generates short-term wins with measurable gains, and can then be replicated for an enterprise-wide impact. While many digital transformation projects start with technology, truly successful programs start with clear business goals. Advanced digital ecosystems empower companies to build incrementally, with targeted solutions for overcoming known issues…
This practical approach includes:
The guide highlights the example of improving heap leaching through better flow measurement to distribute raffinate uniformly over the entire ore bed. By automating this typical manual process of adjusting flow rates, one mining operation achieved a quality score, based on an ideal pressure target, of better than 87%. This quality score was far superior to the prior manual operations.
