Mining Magazine Intelligence Automation Report 2022

An industry review of operations using autonomous solutions around the world, including analysis of why they are investing in this technology

The third annual Mining Magazine Intelligence Automation Report provides a comprehensive review of automation within the mining industry. It collates interviews with industry leaders and profiles on mines at various stages of automation to help stakeholders understand the operators and suppliers at the leading edge of this technology.  

Find out and discover: 

  1. Is automation continuing to grow in the mining industry? 
  2. What challenges do operators face when implementing automation? 
  3. Which ROIs are operators seeing? 
  4. Which OEMs are leading in supplying autonomous solutions? 

The data for our analysis has been aggregated through a global research effort, using basic desktop resources combined with qualitative interviews with operators and suppliers wherever possible. Each profile considers 12 categories: mine type, commodity, production, location, ownership, equipment, operation, commencement date, automation drivers, automation investment, operational personnel and next steps/outlook. 

This growth reflects both newfound investment interest in automated solutions, and companies building out automated fleets as the technology proves itself through dramatic improvements in output and operational efficiency.
