Collaboration May Help Mining Firms Reap Benefits of Digitization

The mining industry as a whole has made great strides with regard to digitizing various mining site operations and processes. This offers mining firms many benefits, including the reduction of operation costs of the mine. These measures also optimize a mine’s major assets, allowing the goals and objectives of a mine to be predicted and monitored easily.

This progress also allows mines to keep track of their operating assets, ensuring that they remain undamaged. Digitization also allows mine operators to redistribute the water used in one process. This helps minimize effluent discharge volumes as well as the mine’s water intake. Overall, digitization helps save a mining firm about 30% in operational expenditures.

However, it seems this may not be all that’s needed to help firms in the industry better their safety and operational gains. Collaboration is said to be the next big thing. The combination of digital solutions and lean concepts may help improve the performance of firms in the mining industry through in-office collaborations.

A fine example of this would be a system based on data analysis that creates advanced maintenance schemes that help determine how mine assets should be maintained for optimal performance, when they should be maintained and what assets should be maintained.

Installing a state-of-the-art operating system that can improve a firm’s daily operations can also enhance a firm’s productivity and safety. To unlock digital transformation, firms in the mining industry may also need to work with partners that may not be involved in the same industry. This will broaden a company’s horizons, allowing a company to not only learn, grow and implement better measures but also bring partners on board that will join forces on solving mutual problems, often in a better and more effective way.

Teaming up with unlikely but formidable partners will also allow firms in the mining industry to understand similarities in areas such as automation and quantum technologies while allowing the firms in the natural resource sector to gain more insights on various issues.

With regard to new technologies, collaborating with technology companies may afford firms in the mining sector a competitive edge, which will allow them to develop and make use of new technologies. This will ensure that companies keep up with the changing times.

Productivity is one of the main objectives of mining firms. Precision mining will also change this, making the process better as well as sustainably and more economically possible, thus enabling more efficiency.

The mining sector has a few companies that stand out in the different segments of this industry. For example, Energy Fuels Inc. (TSX: EFR) (NYSE American: UUUU) is the top U.S. producer of vanadium and uranium.
