Mining Magazine Digitalisation E-Report - 2020

A comprehensive, industry-first review of digitalisation in the mining industry.

The Digitalisation Report will be a comprehensive review of the software, hardware and infrastructure in place across the leading mines and development projects in the industry and will attempt to quantify how these technologies are being deployed, how they are changing operations, the next steps for innovation and, wherever possible, how much is being invested.

What’s in the report:

  • A review of the top-50 mines leading the world in digitalisation
  • Analysis of software and hardware systems being deployed globally
  • Commentary of the key drivers shaping investment decisions in digitalisation programmes
  • Geographical breakdown of where the most digitally advanced solutions are being used in practice

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, location, ownership, digitalisation programs/software, operation, commencement date, infrastructure, hardware, digitalisation drivers, digitalisation investment, next steps/outlook.
